Visitor Information

ATTENTION

Due to a brand new and pending ‘No Force-on-Force’ reenactment policy of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, the annual battle reenactment of the Battle of Bushy Run will not be presented this year, the 260th anniversary. Regular and new events will recognize this historic conflict on August 5 & 6 at the battle site.

An all-hands meeting for members, volunteers and interested community members will be held at the Bushy Run Battlefield museum on Sunday, January 29 at 2 p.m. The ‘No Force-on-Force’ policy and future activities will be discussed.

The Battle of Bushy Run was fought on August 5 & 6, 1763 during Pontiac’s Rebellion between Native Americans and British troops.

Bushy Run Battlefield is operated by The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission and the Bushy Run Battlefield Heritage Society, a volunteer non-profit organization.

Information on the policy can be found here:
