Huzzah! Memorial Day weekend begins with a bang at the WDS Revolutionary War Encampment! Admission to the encampment is free; admission is charged for optional tours of the museum.
Interact closely with the 5th CT Regiment and the 54th Regiment of Foot, a dashing band of British redcoats in full colonial dress, and enjoy entertaining demonstrations of 18th-century medicine, open-fire cookery, camp life, marching and musket firing, music and more. Children can march and perform drills with wooden “muskets.” Big Bear Trading Company will return with reproduction 18- and 19th-century wares for soldiers and civilians alike.
