Don’t miss your chance to see history come to life!
Mark your calendars for October 14 & 15 ~ Mount Harmon is hosting a Revolutionary War & Colonial Festival featuring re-enactors from around the mid-Atlantic region and beyond coming to bring history to life. The event will feature British and Continental Encampments, and Battle Reenactment of 1777 Philadelphia Campaign “The Road to Brandywine” in the Chesapeake region. The event features a Colonial Marketplace with array of colonial craft merchants selling hand-crafted and artisan wares, and living history activities and demonstrations for the whole family to enjoy. The event will portray the 1777 Philadelphia Campaign “Road to Brandywine” when the British forces landed at nearby Head of Elk, with skirmishes and battles in the upper Chesapeake region, as British and Continental forces clashed over the quest for independence. Be sure to join us for all of the time traveling fun, and learn more about this exciting and pivotal period in our nation’s history (why we are not British)!
Each day will feature colonial merchants, military skirmishes and battles, tactical demonstrations and drills, and of course a full-fledged Revolutionary War Encampment of both British and “Rebels” (continental and militia groups) will be at hand to bring history to life. The public will be able to: tour the encampments, shop at the colonial market faire, enjoy children’s musket drill and activities, hearth cooking, colonial crafts, living history demonstrations, manor house tours, General Foreman’s Open Air Tavern and Food Court.
