Revolutionary London Town

Saturday, August 8, 2020

10:00am – 4:30pm

 

We are delighted to announce a modified version of the beloved living history program: Revolutionary London Town!

 

Examine the ideals of the American Revolution through a socially distanced, outdoor-only guided tour of the site. During the tour, you will learn about:

  • the concerns of everyday citizens in London Town on the eve of revolution

  • the ideals and aspirations of Beck, an enslaved woman working in London Town

  • Elizabeth Ferguson, the local businesswoman enslaving Beck

  • the concerns of those in maritime trades, as impending war loomed.
     

Meet citizens who joined the Continental forces and took up the fight. Discuss the grievances listed/outlined in the Declaration of Independence with interpreters/reenactors from the United States Marine Corps Historical Company.

Note: This tour is geared towards adults. Families with children are welcome, but due to modifications for the health crisis, it will not be the hands-on, interactive experience as in previous Revolutionary London Town programs. Instead, this will be a guided tour with extended stationary stops.
