Turning the Tides of War: French Alliance

Saturday, May 6 10 am – 4 pm Muhlenberg Brigade Huts Free Event
French Alliance

Huzzah! Long live the King of France. When France joined the Revolutionary War as an ally to the colonies, our soldiers rejoiced that they were no longer fighting alone. Join us in celebrating the French Alliance with cannon and musket firing. At noon, meet General Du Portail who will cut the ribbon for the grand opening of the reconstructed Fort John Moore Redoubt.

At 11 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm, visitors can participate in a military ceremony similar to that the Continental Army experienced on May 6, 1778. Throughout the day, civilians and camp followers bring the experience to life operating the regimental bake oven and teaching 18th century dancing to properly celebrate the occasion.
