Revolutionary War re-enactors will gather at Monmouth Battlefield State Park to commemorate the anniversary of the battle. Visit their encampments, pass pacing sentries and see enlisted men cleaning their weapons or idling away their time gambling. Watch the women of the army cook, mend and launder. At the parade ground, see soldiers drill or artillerists fire their cannon. During the battle, hills will reverberate with cannon and musket fire as columns of troops maneuver, form line and charge.
Keep an eye on your children or the recruiting sergeant may have them drilling with wooden muskets.
The reenactment takes place annually on the third weekend in June. On June 18, the encampment and programs take place from 10am – 4pm. The reenactment is at 2 pm. On June 19, the encampment and programs take place from 10am – 3pm. The reenactment is at 1:30pm.
