Life Under the Crown
It is 1780 and the colonies are in rebellion. Charleston is under Siege and may have already fallen, the rebel forces were defeated at Savannah last year in 1779. Things are not going well for the American cause. But the Rebels are not done yet!
The weekend will be filled with new ways to learn and experience the history of Augusta and North Augusta. Historical reenactors will be at the Living History Park to allow a glimpse of the period of the American Revolution.
All weekend long historical interpreters will show you colonial life and skills. Musketry, sewing, firestarting, woodworking, blacksmithing, tools and trades of the period as well as interactive discussions and activities with the interpreters will fill the day.
