French & Indian War Encampment at Fort de Chartres in Prairie du Rocher, Illinois on Oct. 14, 2017.

The Fort de Chartres French & Indian War Encampment is this weekend in Prairie du Rocher, Illinois.
It's about historically dressed Native American, soldier, militia, and camp followers re-enactors that participate in everyday camp activities and military drills in the 1750s style. It was a small gathering of perhaps 60 re-enactors.
I visited this morning and captured some excellent photographs.
