Stories Beyond the Battlefield

The goal of the "Stories Beyond the Battlefield" Living History Program is to interpret the often untold stories of the daily life of the soldiers and civilians who fought for independence. This program is intended to paint a clearer picture of who these individuals were beyond their roles as a soldier. Program highlights include 1st and 3rd person interpretation and demonstrations of the trades and crafts that many of these soldiers were involved in, to include blacksmithing, candlemaking, spinning, wood working, cooking, and gardening to name a few. Come and explore these timeless crafts and trades, and reconnect with citizen-soldiers of America's past.
