Living history: Revolutionary War encampment

Jun 23, 2017

The Fairhaven Village Militia, in conjunction with the Marion Cultural Council and Marion Recreation Department, will be holding an encampment at Silvershell Beach, 1 Front Street in Marion, on July 8 and 9.

The Wareham Minutemen and Militia will be participating, as well as the Hubbardston Militia.

The camp will open at 10 a.m. and will close at 5 p.m. Visitors will not need to have a beach sticker to park that day nor will they need a sticker to use the beach.

Living history presentations will take place all day. Talk to period costumed men, women and children from multiple militia groups about life in the 1770s. There will be military drilling, flintlock musket firing, cooking demonstrations, live animals and a cannon firing on both days.

Stop by Wareham's colonial era camp to see doll making, woodworking, rope making, food preparation and of course, our musket collection! Meet the members and consider joining their group.

Admission is free to the public.
