Battle of Monmouth

June 16, 2018 @ 10:00 am - June 17, 2018 @ 3:00 pm

Bring your family to the Battlefield Saturday or Sunday, June 17-18, 2017, and travel back in time to the 1770s. Two armies will be preparing to do battle. Continental Army soldiers retrained at Valley Forge are itching to show off their new skills, while a British-German-Loyalist Army hopes to crush the rebels and restore good government. Come early for a full day of living history. The army encampments will welcome visitors beginning at 9 A.M. Watch soldiers clean their muskets while their women prepare what may be their men’s last meal. Some officers may be drilling their men while others plan for the battle and yet others play cards. If someone is accused of cheating, there may be a duel. Keep track of your children or they may be drafted into one of the armies.
