Last August we were contacted about making some pieces for the upcoming mini series "Roots" that is to air on The History Channel and A&E starting Memorial Day weekend. Along with these 8 pieces we also had to make duplicates of a couple of the knifes with dull edges and points. Jeanne made the bags, the sheaths and she wove the powder horn strap and I did the rest of the work. I also did some technical advisory work for the series concerning historical weapons.
