Revolutionary War Encampment 2018

May 26 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

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 in full colonial dress, and enjoy entertaining demonstrations of 18th-century medicine, open-fire cookery, camp life, marching and musket firing and music. At 1 p.m. there will be a skirmish with a dashing band of British redcoats! Children are invited to learn to march and perform drills with wooden “muskets.” The ever-popular Big Bear Trading Company will be present with reproduction 18 and 19th-century wares for soldiers and civilians alike.
