Experience the American Revolution at a Living History Event!

May 28-29, 2022

This US revolutionary war reenactment offers all the sights, smells, sounds, and tastes of the 18th century. Reenactors bring history to life during this unforgettable weekend.

Authentic battle enactments are held several times during the event. Food from the era is prepared over open fires and merchant tents offer 18th-century wares. All-day entertainment includes period music, children’s games, storytellers, oxen demonstrations, and more.

George Rogers Clark National Historical Park Grounds

Stroll through the encampment and interact with members of the NWTA (North West Territory Alliance). Witness the color ceremony, 18th Century Fashion Show, a parade of uniforms, and watch the film at the Visitor’s Center. 

You are welcome to go inside the Memorial to see the 7 1/2 foot bronze statue of George Rogers Clark and marvel at the seven 28 foot murals by Ezra Winter that depict the story of Clark’s capture of Fort Sackville during the American Revolution.

Conclude your weekend at the Memorial for period music and the NWTA closing ceremony, evening colors, and troop parade.
