This year marks the 242nd anniversary of the Battle of Fort Washington, a key event during the Revolutionary War. 

The Brigade of the American Revolution will perform and lead drills. Come to watch a blacksmith demonstration, listen to live 18th-century music, make arts and crafts, and play games from the revolutionary period. Tour the battle scene with a tour guide dressed as heroine Margaret Corbin. 

Prizes will be offered for the most authentic costumes!
