Living History: Revolutionary War Weekend

Recommended for all ages
Free with Museum Admission

Spend your weekend at the New-York Historical Society visiting our new exhibition, Mapping America’s Road from Revolution to Independence, and meeting Revolutionary War soldiers!

On Sunday, November 19, 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, line up to learn a military drill, and meet camp followers—women who supported troops in the field!

Want to experience more of the War for Independence? Visit the Museum on Saturday to meet the 2nd Continental Light Dragoons and discover how the War for Independence was fought on horseback!
