COSSAR participated in and provided membership information to visitors at the Annual Scottish Festival in Highlands Ranch, south of Denver. Color Guard members were located with the Living History section of the festival and demonstrated flintlock firearms preparation and actual firing of black powder blanks with visitors. In addition, mock battles and gun salutes were held.
The COSSAR encampment & new enlistments at the Rocky Mountain Scottish Highland Games August 14-15, 2010.
Below is shown one of the many firing demonstrations with Colonials, Continentals, Yankees, Confederates and WWII Army living history participants. The command: "Gentlemen, after the first volley, fire at will!" (One of the shirkers replied, "Who's Will?"). Included were members of the Northern Colorado Fife and Drum Corps, Sons of the American Revolution, Sons of Union Veterans, Sons of Confederate Veterans, and the 10th Mountain Division.
