Do these guys look familiar. No, this is not a commercial. They're the Scottish Highlanders - part of the British hoard that show up for the reenactment of the Battle of Monmouth fought in 1778. As the date indicates, this is a big year - the 230Th Anniversary. So we're excited. Historically, soldiers in the 1st Rhode Island Regiment, were assigned to Captain Arnold's detachment and fought in this battle on June 28Th, 1778.
