I've a question regarding our own blog. Is there any interest to read our accounts of Livinig-History-Events in english?
I ask because our events reflect very often real events of the period although really exotic. But they illustrate the period. The costumes are following a lot of sources of the period. Perhaps the photos are usefull for figurepainting. Especially militia and peasants are not often illustrated in the books from Osprey (or if they are, there is often a great lack of knowledge about the garments on the side of the illustrators). SYW is very often the thema of our Events although we have no military reenactment involved (the Museum does'nt like uniformed LH).
...today the war of the Austrian succession is a nearly forgotten war...
A bitter conclusion, but you make a pioneering work, shedding light to some historical events that would have been impossible to be found from other sources! With much respect to your work, I have read through all the pages of your interesting blog! Thank you for sharing all this research with us! Please, keep posting! I don't need, of course, to urge you to continue researching, because from all your work till now, it has been proved that it is in your DNA

Many thanks for your comment.
We had some problems to post comments in our blog because we feared all the pitfalls of the new DSGVO. It was huge work to delete all the stuff forbidden by the DSGVO on our blog (we deleted http-links for example...).
From time to time it's nice to read that our blog is helpfull for the somebody.
Next year our focus will be on a combat of the 30-years war and a episode from 1769 including a bit of military stuff.
But I hope to write something about the great siege of Freiburg in 1744. Perhaps in another blog.
