Revolutionary War military encampment and country dance, tactical demonstrations, craft demonstrations, children's activities and more. Hosted by the Nathan Hale Ancient Fife and Drum Corps.
Organized in 1965, The Nathan Hale Ancient Fifes & Drums of Coventry, Connecticut have been officially recognized by the State of Connecticut as the reactivated 19th Connecticut Regiment of Foote - Continental Line. The Corps consists of four units: the Field Music; Knowlton's Connecticut Rangers; Capt. Stephen Buckland's Artillery; and the Company of Artificers. The musicians are attired in the regimental uniform of Col. Charles Webb's 19th Connecticut Regiment of Foot in which unit Capt Nathan Hale served in 1776. Their commitment to authenticity has resulted in their having won the coveted recognition from the Company of Military Historians. Several of the muskets carried by the Rangers are actual Brown Bess Tower Muskets not reproductions!
Suggested donation of $5 for encampment. Country barn dance begins at 7 pm and will be accompanied by a caller and live music. Come alone or with a partner. Instruction will be given. Admission to dance $10.
