It is 1780 and the colonies are in rebellion. Charleston is under siege and may have already fallen. The rebel forces were defeated at Savannah last year in 1779. Things are not going well for the American cause but the rebels are not done yet!

This event focuses on the time when the British were in control of the colonies.  Historical reenactors will provide a glimpse into the American  Revolution and daily life during the British occupation.  There will be numerous demonstrations including pottery-making, weaving, spinning, candle-making, butter churning, musket firing, gunsmithing, blacksmithing, needlework, woodworking, beehive oven baking and smoking/curing meat. Visitors can play colonial games, sing songs, and sample baked goods at the Sweet Shoppe! You can try your hand at colonial dancing or see if you are fit to join the militia! Be sure to visit with the traders, backwoodsmen, milliner, tavern keeper, and the sutlers. Find period-authentic wares at the Village Mercantile and see the lathe that was used in the movie The Patriot in the New Windsor cabinet shop.
