Powder House Day
April 21, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Powder House Day commemorates the events of April 22, 1775, when Captain Benedict Arnold and his foot brigade demanded the keys to New Haven’s city powder house, so that they might arm themselves and head down to Massachusetts to join the bloody fray of the American Revolution. Although the people of New Haven had voted the day previous to refrain from involvement, these brave soldiers took it upon themselves to do their duty at any cost. Each year, on the Saturday closest to April 22, visitors are invited to City Hall to watch a patriotic reenactment of the storied events.
