National Reenactment & Living History Weekend at Mount Harmon Plantation
“Join us on May 21st & 22nd for the National American War for Independence event, featuring a reenactment of the 1777 campaign "on the road to Brandywine".
Learn about the movements of the combative forces around the Chesapeake Bay, and the integral trade systems that centered around this body of water during the 18th century. Mount Harmon is a colonial era Tidewater plantation, situated on a peninsula in Cecil County, Maryland. It is a beautiful and expansive site with 200 acres of pristine wildlife. Mount Harmon offers an 18th century manor house, outbuildings, tobacco barn, enslaved quarters, gardens and more. The Friends of Mount Harmon have been actively campaigning for preservation of the plantation's history, including a new educational center and outbuildings that better educate visitors on the history of the enslaved who lived there.
The event will feature a full Continental Line march into camp, exciting battle scenarios, and individual presentations of various branches in the combative forces. There will be immersive demonstrations that highlight vast community contributions to the combative forces, such as laundresses, Brigade Sutlers, markets and more. Walking tours will guide you through camp while you explore the bustling population surrounding encampments in this time period. Children will enjoy a special drill designed just for them, as well as other opportunities for games and education.
Admission is $10 per day, children under 12 are free. Visit https://mountharmon.org/ for more information.”
