Poltava's 300th

Tomorrow is a red letter day in the calendar - it's the 300th anniversary of this significant victory that was a turning point in the story of Russia's military history.
I'm not sure how it will be celebrated by the great Preobrazhensky Life Guards 1709 - probably involve vodka at some point - this image from their 1709 Live Journal of Russian GNW reenactors is my way of saluting them - also see the webpage - it has been updated and there are many languages accommodated. Well worth spending time there.
