Pieken en musketten ~ Of pikes and muskets



The above text I took from the 1910 edition  of the "Groninger Almanak" , a 19th century yearbook-series  about "interesting things happening in the Province of Groningen", mostly historic facts about people, streetnames and the like.


This text states that the pikes, used by the city militia is to replaced by flintlocks. THis is about the same period that in the States' army the pike was to be replaced.
