Revolutionary War Encampment at Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum

The annual Revolutionary War Encampment will be held at Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum in Wethersfield on Saturday, May 25th from 10 am to 4 pm

Memorial Day weekend begins with a bang at the WDS Revolutionary War Encampment! The fun begins at 10 a.m. following the Wethersfield Memorial Day parade. Admission to the encampment is free; regular admission charged for optional tours of the museum.

Interact closely with the 5th Connecticut Regiment in full colonial dress, and enjoy entertaining demonstrations of 18th-century medicine, open-fire cookery, camp life, marching and musket firing and music. At 1 p.m. there will be a skirmish with a dashing band of British redcoats. Children are invited to learn to march and perform drills with wooden “muskets.”

Also returning is the ever-popular Big Bear Trading Company, with reproduction 18 and 19th-century wares for soldiers and civilians alike.
