Revolutionary War Weekend
Step back in time during one of the largest Revolutionary War re-enactments in the country at the estate of General Washington.
Mount Vernon's serene 12-acre field transforms into a battleground as hundreds of Continentals, Redcoats, and Hessians conduct military drills, perform cavalry demonstrations, and engage in 18th-century battle reenactments. Throughout the weekend, wander through the encampment and meet the soldiers, discuss military techniques, and meet General Washington. Young visitors can join a youth muster on the bowling green and participate in 18th-century demonstrations to understand life as a soldier in the Continental Army.
Revolutionary War Weekend takes place rain or shine. Schedule subject to change.
