On Sunday, Sept. 9th, the Isaak Walton League of York will host 17th Century re-enactors,
the Twisted Knot Company of Pike and Shotte. As part of their demonstration the company will
fire their cannon, a type used by Maryland colonists against the Susquehannock Indians and
foreign colonial forces.The Company portrays soldiers who used “pike and shot” tactics during
the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, the early American Colonial period, and the English Civil Wars.
They will be appearing at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire throughout October and asked the
IWL for space to rehearse after their summer hiatus. Their demonstration will include matchlock
muskets, pikes (two-handed spears) and classical sword fighting technique.
The demonstrations will be conducted in authentic period dress, including armor.
The event will begin around 1PM and last until 4PM. Visitors will be welcome to ask questions,
handle the weaponry, and interact with the company. The event is open to the public.
