Note: The January 7th program has been cancelled due to forecasted weather conditions.
Children are invited to Join the Continental Army and experience a day in the life of the continental soldier. Recruits will be mustered, or registered, by receiving enlistment papers and continental currency. Recruits will then be issued wooden (dummy) muskets and learn how to stand, march, and carry their musket as one of Washington's soldiers would have done. Park rangers dressed in continental uniform will train the recruits in a full musket drill.
Programs begin at 11:00 a.m. at the Visitor Center. Please arrive by 10:45 a.m. to "muster", or sign in.
No reservations necessary. Weather dependent, activities will take place outdoors, so please dress accordingly and wear sturdy shoes.
