Sights and Sounds of the Revolutionary War, a living history event

Saturday October 12. 10 - 3. For the whole family.

This free event will provide an excellent opportunity to experience what it was like during this era of our country's history.  There will be a Revolutionary War live field hospital staffed by the Pennsylvania 6th Regiment reenactors, live musket shots, living history guided tours of Revolutionary War soldiers graves, colonial era kids games and many other activities.  

The event is being hosted by St John Lutheran Church Blue Bell, as part of the Church's 250th Anniversary celebrations.

After the Battle of Germantown, General Washington and his troops retreated west on Skippack Pike.  They stopped at St John to tend to their wounded and bury the dead.  A field hospital was set up on the property, to treat the wounded soldiers. The reenactors are going to provide an in depth look and explanation of the tools, methods and history of treating the wounded soldiers, and discuss what it was like to be a soldier in those times.

Those that did not survive were buried on the property.  The Church's cemetery is the final home to 20 soldiers from that battle.  A tour will be given with a short history of each of those patriots. Two separate live musket shots (Mourning of Arms) will be fired.

Kids will be able to play numerous colonial era games and other activities.

A full menu of lunch items will be available for purchase, as well as delicious baked items.

Experience living history! The event is from 10 - 3 and is rain or shine.
