Step back into the contentious days surrounding the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Join the people of London Town in exploring what “independence” really means. You can join the Continental Army or Continental Marines to learn musket drill, debate the merits of independence in William Brown’s tavern, and learn how colonists made a living at our Carpenters’ Shop and Tenement.
The United States Marine Corps Historical Company will be leading several activities, including blackpowder demonstrations, debating the Declaration of Independence, demonstrating outdoor cooking, and of course, leading marine recruitment.
H.M. Frigate Seahorse will lead navigation demonstrations while Ship’s Company will showcase rope-making, and Seneca Creek Joinery will do carpentry.
Included with general admission. Free for members.
