Revolutionary War Encampment: Escape from Boston
May 20 – 21
Members of the Continental Line and His Majesty’s First Regiment of Foot Guards will reenact a retreat from Boston with cannon, cavalry and drills. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn how battles were planned and tour the 1690 manor house, the home of two of Newburyport’s Revolutionary War heroes. In addition, the Essex Base Ball Organization will play demonstration games of early cricket. Fresh food and drink will be available for purchase, including Ipswich Ale Brewery cask ale, a local beer brewed in the old-style for those looking to go all-in for the authentic reenactment experience.
