Spend your Memorial Day 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!
Come back on Memorial Day to learn how soldiers fought on horseback in the American Revolution! Ask members of the Second Continental Light Dragoons, an organization that re-establishes a cavalry troop from almost 250 years ago, to teach you a saber drill!
