Spend your weekend at the New-York Historical Society saluting those who fought in the American Revolution! Living Historians from the 3rd New Jersey Regiment, historical reenactors portraying soldiers and civilians, will be encamped in the Museum to answer your questions about life on and off the battlefield. Look into a Continental soldier’s tent to see their uniforms and equipment up close or line up to learn a military drill!
Want to meet more soldiers from the War for Independence? Come celebrate Fourth of July at the Museum on Tuesday with our special family program, Independence Day: Celebrating American Identities! Along with making crafts and enjoying other activities, you’ll meet historical reenactors portraying the Continental Army's historic “Black Regiment,” the 1st Rhode Island Regiment!
