The Redcoats are coming!

The capture of Hillsborough, N.C., by David Fanning's Tory troops will be reenacted this weekend, marking the 225th anniversary of the event. The town will be engulfed in two days of Revolutionary fervor.

On Sunday, in the midst of battle, St. Matthew's Episcopal Church will hold services according to the 18th century prayer book. The ministers will wear period vestments. Paul and I are ushers. Assuming we can get there safely, what should we wear?
