About the event

This program recreates daily life in a Continental Army camp, c. 1776. After a brief historical overview of the conflict, participants go through an enlistment ceremony, receive uniforms and equipment, and rotate through a series of stations typifying soldierly activities such as setting up tents and cook fires, weapons drill and ceremony, soldier’s chores and games and tactics on the battlefield. The program concludes with participants receiving their colonial pay and discharge papers. NOTE: Weaponry utilized in this program consists of rubber band firing toys, water balloon grenades and toy cap pistols. Staff members demonstrate the firing of a musket without ammunition in a manner similar to what you would see during a Memorial Day Ceremony. Also includes all equipment needed, a light “muster meal” after the event and admission to the Museum.
