Re-enactors, soldiers and musicians of the 10th Regiment of Foot from Lexington, Mass., enjoy peaceful moments during the New France Infantry Recruit School at the Citadelle de Québec from May 19 to 21.

Seventeenth-century soldiers and their families took over the Citadelle de Québec during the May long weekend.

More than 140 historical re-enactors from the United States and Canada participated in the sixth edition of the École du Soldat de la Nouvelle-France/New France Infantry Recruit School hosted by the Royal 22e Régiment Museum.
