Saturday’s weather, after a night of rain, proved more amenable, with some sunshine and a cold breeze. Revolutionary War reenactors from four states engaged with visitors, giving tours of their campsites including information on cooking and living during that time. They presented drills and artillery demonstrations which culminated in a final “battle” reenactment as the British troops skirmished with the continental units on the hill.
This year also marks the 130th anniversary of Putnam Memorial State Park. For more information on opportunities to be involved visit www.putnampark.org or search for them on Facebook.
A “muster and drill” for children is always a popular activity at Putnam Park’s reenactments.
The finale was a skirmish between reenactors representing the two sides in battle.
