Military Encampment

Experience Life as a Soldier

Would you have made a good soldier in the Revolution? Enjoy "freedom of the camp" as you meet members of the Virginia State Garrison Regiment. Take part in drill practice or cannon firing. Ask soldiers about their daily life - cooking, playing field music, and preparing tents for shelter. You'll be encouraged to enlist and get your first instruction in the manual of arms by your drill sergeant.
