If you’ve never been to the annual encampment at Jockey Hollow, you’re missing a colorful spectacle.

It continues today, Sunday, April 21, until 5 pm.  The link above contains the day’s schedule, complete with cannon- and musket firings, military drills for the kids, and friendly volunteers armed with many lifetimes of historical knowledge.

2nd New Jersey Regiment, Helms’ Company

1st Continental Regiment of Foot

German Regiment

1st New Jersey Regiment

Oak’s Company of Artificers

9th Pennsylvania, Light Company

Mott’s Artillery, 2nd Detachment (Sunday Only)

5th Pennsylvania Regiment

The park is in Harding and directions are here.
