Some traditions are just too noisy

While I appreciate the importance of tradition and creating a realistic historical experience for both tourists and locals, it breaks my heart to think of all the birds and other wildlife that are terrorized by the sound of musket fire, as well as fireworks, after dark. I believe we can celebrate our colonial past and still have respect for the animals that also live here.
