TO KILL A KING (2003)-Saw the Trailer

I saw the trailer for To Kill A King (2003) this evening while cruising for something to watch on On Demand. I ended up watching Michael Moore's Sicko, but I'll be going back to catch what looks like a decent flick on events leading to the execution of Charles I. Costuming looked definitely better than 1970's Cromwell.

I don't honestly know if this will fly in the blogosphere, but I figure I couldn't do any worse generating interest than the blog I started regarding issues in my profession. I'd actually have to work at it to do worse. I suffer from an interest in the obscure. If all I do is collect my own thoughts on the matter at hand, well, okay. As this is the first post, I may be editing it over the next few days or deleting it altogether.

I am not a hardcore reenactor. I've been involved to the extent time and money have allowed, but haven't been active the last several years. I still maintain a keen interest in the period and the arts involved in creating historically accurate impressions.

I don't have a clear idea yet what I'll be writing about. I imagine I'll be posting about kit, clothing, historical events and the regiments that took part in them. I intend my main focus to be the seventeenth cenury, but as I have an interest in the Jacobite rebellions culminating in the '45, I'll be writing about those here and there as well.

A note about the links to reenactor groups. It is by no means meant to be exclusive. As it exists at the time of this writing, it is only as complete as my weary head allowed it be the evening I was setting it up. If you have an reenactment organization that's relevant to this blog, give me a shout and I'll include your link. I'll also be updating the link lists as I come across websites I've been previously unaware of or remember the ones I left out.
