Battle of Grolle
The Spanish flag waves on top of the church tower in Grolle. In the streets, children are playing children’s games, merchants are haggling about the price of their goods, pigs are roasted on a spit. Everything just seems to be peaceful… until the message arrives that the State army, under command of Prince Frederik Hendrik, is approaching. Horses are galloping across the firing range. Canons are roaring, muskets are fired, and the re-enactors go to battle.
Grolle is under siege!
