Join us as we journey back to the 1760’s, a time just before the American Revolution, when New Jersey was embroiled in another earlier conflict known as the French and Indian War! Come experience first-hand what military life was like in the colonies before we fought to become an independent nation! Visitors are invited to enjoy a typical day at the New Jersey barracks, where they can explore an 18th century British military encampment, engage with a period military recruiting party, and tour the barracks itself, which was built during the French and Indian War for the purpose of housing these British forces. Activities throughout the day include morning roll call, drill and firelock demonstrations, rationing and cooking demonstrations, and an official “marching out” of the barracks. There will also be a recreated Sutler station on the grounds of the museum to present visitors with the people who followed the army to offer goods, supplies, and services not issued by the crown!
At 2 PM on both days, George Bray III will be giving a presentation entitled "Lieutenant Thomas Davies: Artilleryman & Artist of the French and Indian War."
This promises to be a fun and educational event for the entire family!
This program is included with the regular cost of admission for our visitors. Admission: $8 Adults, $6 Seniors/Students, Free Children 5 and under/Active Military/Members.
