Our premiere event for the year pits the forces of his Royal Highness King George III against a confederation of Native Americans.  See all the colors of war in the vibrant recreations of the two-day battle of Bushy Run that the various reenactors bring to life. Learn about how the battle progressed as well as how people lived in the mid-eighteenth century.

Two battle reenactments occur throughout the day. The morning battle starts at 11 a.m. and portrays the events that occurred on August 5 while the afternoon engagement begins at 2 p.m.  and shows the August 6 tactics that led to British victory. Also featured are eighteenth century military camps, a sutler trade area, period craftspeople and a children’s area!  We will also have artists Robert Griffing and Andrew Knez here.  Griffing will be here on Sunday in the Stone Room while Knez will be here on both days.
