2023 > Bourtange
The Napoleonic Association of the Netherlands, the Exercitie Peloton Bourtange and the Foundation Fortress Bourtange
cordially invite you to participate in the event "Battle for Bourtange 2023".
This event will take place in the Fortress Town of Bourtange, Municipality of Westerwolde, the Netherlands.
Provisional declaration of participants:
By means of this pre-registration, we request you to respond before March 1, 2023, so the organization can estimate the turnout.
Please be realistic in that. Registering for 20 people and showing up up with 5 really works for no one.
This pre-registration does not, however, entitle you to participate. The number of places is limited.
The theme of this event will be the siege & eventual conquest of the Bourtange fortress by the Allies over the French.
Of course there will be skirmishes for the public and a battle.
A program will also be developed for civilians. Traders from this period are welcome to sign up.
Wood, straw, water and gunpowder will be made available by the organization.
Ready ? 2 - 4/06/2023 Battle of Bourtange
