Re-enactment of the 1673 Jolliet Marquette Expedition


I’m posting this for an acquaintance of mine who is working towards this re-enactment starting mid May. The website is and I’m just spreading the word for him.

My understanding is this is being done piecemeal; joining doesn’t mean having to do the whole expedition, you can do just one segment, and they will be road-tripping to start points and rowing to the places the expedition stopped, and camping there.

So if any of you enjoy, and have some level of skill in camping, rowing a canoe, play violin, mandolin, or guitar, speak passable French or perhaps are a Jesuit priest who might like to participate for a few days, please take a look.
