Memorial Day weekend begins with a bang at the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum Revolutionary War Encampment. The fun begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 26, 2018, at 211 Main St., following the Wethersfield Memorial Day parade, and lasts until 4 p.m.
During the WDS Revolutionary War Encampment, visitors can interact closely with the 5th Connecticut Regiment in full colonial dress, and enjoy entertaining demonstrations of 18th-century medicine, open-fire cookery, camp life, marching and musket firing and music. At 1 p.m. there will be a skirmish with a dashing band of British redcoats. Children are invited to learn to march and perform drills with wooden “muskets.” The ever-popular Big Bear Trading Company will be present with reproduction 18 and 19th-century wares for soldiers and civilians alike.
