About the event
Step back in history to the year 1775 and spend the day with Revolutionary War patriot soldiers right here at Southold Historical Museum’s Maple Lane on September 17. A living history encampment will be set up by the reenactors from the Third New York Regiment. The encampment will have tents and everything soldiers would need to live on as they travelled to join up with General Washington and his troops. The reenactors immerse themselves and their visitors in a well-researched experience of what it was like to spend the day in a military encampment.
The Third New York Regiment reenactors will portray a unit encamped in what is now Suffolk County during the War of Independence in 1775. Visitors will experience 18th-century camp life, including demonstrations of firearms, military drills, and other daily tasks. The encampment will be open to visitors from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, September 17, 2022.
Families are invited to come and experience the reenactment. Please keep in mind that the musket drills can be loud. Southold Historical Museum is committed to sharing and encouraging learning about local history and thus, this event is free to all. Donations are gladly accepted.
