Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum, 211 Main Street
Wethersfield, CT 06109 United States
Memorial Day weekend begins with a bang at the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum Revolutionary War Encampment. Admission to the encampment is free; regular admission will be charged for optional tours of the museum. Interact with the 5th Connecticut Regiment in full colonial dress, and enjoy entertaining demonstrations of 18th-century medicine, open-fire cookery, camp life, marching and musket firing and music. At 1 p.m. there will be a skirmish with a dashing band of British redcoats. Children are invited to learn to march and perform drills with wooden “muskets.” Also returning is the ever-popular Big Bear Trading Company, with reproduction 18 and 19th-century wares for soldiers and civilians alike.
