Hi All! A few towns from where I live had the Annual Reenactment of the Battle of Monmouth, I had nothing better to do so I packed the D70 and a few lens. Long story short about the battle: For several long, hot, and exhausting hours during the afternoon of June 28, the largest land artillery battle of the American Revolution raged. The Continental artillery won the battle forcing the British artillery to withdraw. General Washington moved fresh troops forward to resume the battle at dawn, but during the night, British forces slipped away, ending the last major battle of the north. The Battle of Monmouth was a political triumph for the Continental Army and General George Washington. The Continental Army had met the British in open field and forced them to retreat. British casualties were two to three times greater than those of the American troops. If interested you can read more on the battle here: http://www.u-s-history.com/pages/h1116.html Thanks for looking. All shot were taken with the D70 and 70-200 VR glass except for the first shot that was with the nikon 12-24.
