Experience 18th-century life through costumed interpreters, hands-on activities, and military demonstrations. Aspects of colonial American life will be available for you to experience – agriculture, blacksmith, education, games, gunsmith, military, and much more.
1775 – Colonial Location – Lexington Massachusetts
Tension mounts as the Major-General Thomas Gage orders the British soldiers to seize arms and ammunition from the colonists. Come and hear “the shot heard round the world.”
18th-Century Military Demonstration – twice daily
Both Continental and British troops will demonstrate 18th-century military maneuvers. Though similar, you will learn the differences between the two opposing forces. This will be introduced by a rousing fife and drum march and concluded with a booming artillery demonstration.
Stop at the apothecary tent to learn about 18th-century medicine. Several surgical techniques will be demonstrated, and none of them will be frightening to watch.
Projects – twice daily
We offer optional hands-on crafts to make something special to take home. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
