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.

Jeff Sovelove sent these great shots from Saturday’s activities, which included re-enactors from these groups:

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
1st Maryland Regiment

The park is in Harding and directions are here.
