Living History: Fighting the Revolution on Horseback

April 15, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

History comes to life at the Museum! This Sunday, meet Living Historians from the Second Continental Light Dragoons, an organization that brings to life the first congressionally authorized cavalry regiment in American history. (In fact, it is still recognized as an active unit in the military today!)

These mobile troops are stationed at the Museum on their feet for the day to answer all of your questions about fighting on horseback. Watch a saber drill and take a close look at their special helmets, military saddle, and other equipment!
