Battle of Oriskany, and spawn the New York State Muzzleloaders Association

Battle of Oriskany, and spawn the New York State Muzzleloaders Association

My third visit was on November 30, 2004. This time I walked and talked with William Lloyd. Bill conceived, organized and publicized the Bicentennial Re-creation of the March of the Tryon County Militia and the Battle of Oriskany on August 4, 5 & 6, 1977. His initial motivation was to illustrate the significance of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America that guaranteed citizens “the right to keep and bear arms.” He didn’t realize at the time that he would create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for participants and observers, provide national recognition of the significance of the Battle of Oriskany, and spawn the New York State Muzzleloaders Association. He also inspired me to explain it all in my first book, ONE QUARTER MILE TO GO.
