n.— «Wolfe has been a part of the festival for 20 years and is this year’s booshway, from the French term bourgeois or proprietor of the land. He is in charge of coordinating the reenactors and demonstrators. The fest has about 80 demonstrators, most of which are volunteers, who settle in for a weekend of living, 1800s-style.» —“Booshway: A bourgeois among pioneers” by Kevin Haas Rockford Register Star (Illinois) Sept. 22, 2006.
