Learn what a British army camp might have been like as you visit soldiers, craftsmen and camp followers near where the two regiments of the army met and organized to begin the march to Fort Cumberland, westward outpost of the British colonies. Historians and reenactors will interpret daily life and military drills in a typical camp of General Braddock's army. Presentations by noted historians, exhibits, and period crafts and food will address aspects beyond the military components.
Events will take place April 16-17, Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday Noon to 4 p.m., at Abram's Delight, Winchester, VA.
Sponsored in partnership with the Winchester/Frederick County Historical Society, George Washington Frontier Forts Association, and The French and Indian War Foundation.
