Re-live that great struggle with us and bring the American Revolution alive!
As you arrive, you’ll be placed in “townships.” You’ll stay with your township throughout the day and visit a variety of village posts. After everyone has arrived and is on the main green, the regulars will check you for contraband. If smugglers are found, they will be arrested in a brief recreation of the “Gaspee Affair.” The excitement begins when the American minutemen attempt to come to the rescue.
After the opening skirmish, you’ll be off to participate in several hands-on stations. Text books come alive as students participate in these fun and challenging activities.
After lunch, students get to participate in a mock battle, a recreation of the 1775 Battle of St. George’s Tavern. Colonial Townships will use their martial drilling training to defend the tavern behind a dry stone wall while the Redcoat Townships will attempt to march on the tavern.
Please bring your own lunch and plenty of water. Out of pocket costs for students, parents, and siblings 3+ will be $23.48
