Life in the American Revolution

Life in the American Revolution


British soldier firing rifleVisitors to the museum see first-hand, and in some cases do, what our forefathers and mothers did so many years ago as knowledgeable volunteers tell the stories of Life in the American Revolution. A bivouac takes over the museum grounds and visitors will see: soldiers living in tents; skirmishes between Patriot and Crown troops; a medical doctor showing all the gory tools of his trade centuries ago; a surveyor with his traditional equipment, a loyalist telling his story; a Hessian wife telling hers; women cooking traditional food over an open fire, and more.  Dedicated groups of volunteers from the Colonel Bailey’s 2nd Massachusetts Regiment and the 74th Highland Regiment, come to central Maine from around New England for this truly unique event. Bring a picnic, and spend the day in the 18th Century!
