In celebration of Patriots’ Day, Old Sturbridge Village brought to life the stories of Patriots who helped lay the groundwork for the founding of our country during the American Revolution as well as military history from the 19th and 20th centuries during the weekend long event.
The 1812 Marine Guard engaged the public with educational presentations and performed a morning and afternoon musket firing demonstration during both days. The Unit joined military units from several different wars in bringing the stories of the American military to life.
While at the event, the Unit took in some of what makes Old Sturbridge Village a must see on your next weekend getaway or vacation.
