Crimean war peepshow

Our Russian Jager reenactor friends made a peepshow - a traditional popular entertainment in the 1850s in Russia for the event at the Alma - go here to see photos of the results.


  1. I really like that these Russians are doing camp life along with "battle." Seeing the Crimean War only from the British view in my reading, I thought that the Russians were anonymous brutes. Seeing Russians research and recreate their own past gives me some empathy for the Russians in that war.
    Thanks for posting.

  2. no, it we simply pretend that normal people)))
