I am currently collecting accounts of the first Pennsic War for a University project on the formation of legends. I am requesting help from anyone who has ever heard a story about why we have the Pennsic War. Stories heard from the guy sitting next to you in the food court to those told by bards around the fire are welcome, I am trying to collect as many variations as I possibly can. Here are some possible questions that the story might answer:
* Who started Pennsic?
* Who hosted the first Pennsic?
* What was the war over?
* Where was it held?
* Who won?
Also please include if you can who, where and when you heard you account so I can attempt to trace the progression of these stories. I will attempt to make the final result of this project available on the web when it is finished.
Please send you stories and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thank you all,
P.S. My apologies to those of you who receive this multiple times. Please forward it on to any SCA related list so I can have the most complete collection possible. Thank you again!
