10 Days War of 1831






Was looking for stuff on the Belgian Revolution and came across this old blog posting of mine from 2005.
History is a very geographically related subject; just to prove it, this must count on an international basis, as the most obscure period reenacted - the 10 days war of 1831 - in the Low Countries. Chances are, like me, you've never heard of it and I don't suppose many people out of the area know it at all but it does look pretty.
The group doing it are here http://www.vlgn.nl/index.php?lang=nl
For further information on this refreshingly short and sweet war go here http://www.nationmaster.com/encyclopedia/Belgian-Revolution
and http://www.zum.de/whkmla/military/19cen/tiendaagse.html

I think it's great and wish them well - in fact I think we in Britain should form two societies to do this - and then both societies can hate each other and have nothing to do with one another
