Military Arts Day

Saturday, August 27, 2022 10:00 AM - 04:00 PM


Join us for a day-long presentation of 18th century "military arts". Throughout the day members of the recreated Lamb's Artillery and Mott's Artillery companies will conduct cannon firings, while the troops of the 5th New York Regiment conduct infantry drill and construct defensive works. Demonstrations of the arts of cartography, calligraphy and water coloring will take place throughout the day. At 2:00 site staff will perform the music that was played to regulate the soldiers' day. An artillery demonstration will immediately follow.
