History of the regt



29-30 September 2007 
Priozersk, Russia (150 km N from St. Petersburg). ex-Korela, ex-Kexholm, ex-Kakisalmi.
The 3rd festival "Garrison of Kexholm".
This became our traditional closing of season - to look back at events that happenned in 2007 and to discuss our plans for 2008. 
We gathered up to 25 participants: both old friends from St. Petersburg, Narva (Estonia) and Riga (Latvia) and newbies - reenactors from Ukraine who represent Swedish infantry - Jönköpings regemente.

As usual, we had drill sessions, festivities, performanes for civilians etc. We also recreated battle scenes like storming or defending the fortress, including various methods of "parapet firing" per military treatise from 1720s.
