Brome County Museum brings history alive for St-Jean Baptiste Day

By Taylor McClure Special to Brome County News

The Brome County Museum had some special promoters last Thursday with one British privateer and two French officers from the 1750 French and Indian War, one representing the French Marines and one representing the Bearne Regiment, dressed up in hand-stitched regimental dresses from the period, handing out two-for-one tickets to the museum, for St-Jean de Baptiste. 

“It was sort of a mustering of a few officers and what is was like (back then),” said Raphael Swan, who served as the British privateer and has been a professional reenactor for two decades.
