Corey has actively participated in reenactments, festivals, and faires for almost three decades. An interest that started with the reenactment of the Mountain Man/Fur Trade era, quickly moved into the eras of the French/Indian War and Revolutionary War, finally became a passion in the Golden Age of Piracy. As a result, Corey has manifested a huge collection of period-correct museum-quality encampment full of goods, weapons, textiles, wears, furniture, wardrobes, and tents.
The encampment features three sections which are full of museum quality items: The Chamberlain Dory, Home Camp, and Tavern.
The encampment is also a feast for the eyes, especially if you like weapons. Corey’s large collection of period weaponry and weapon related goods and items, feature swords (e.g. rapiers, cutlasses, broad swords), guns (e.g. muskets, pistols, blunderbuss, pocket pistols, matchlock, doglock, flintlock), cannon (e.g. 3 lb, swivel gun), grenados, daggers, armor, and bows & arrows.
Corey is captain of his own crew: “The Pirates of the Silver Realm”. Whenever possible, crew members interact with the encampment to create a truly interactive experience for both crew and spectators alike. Corey’s persona is that of a Merchant Trader and his family who act as Corey “Dogfish Briggins” Lefkowitz 3 the “middle men” between Pirates, Privateers, and the Public. Along with his family (his wench and two children – yes, children outfitted perfectly in period attire), the Captain creates an atmosphere that invites all walks of life commonly found during the Golden Age of Piracy.
