Because of the effects of COVID-19, the event will be smaller than usual and there will be no battle re-enactment, but there will plenty to do, as visitors can see how people dressed, see the weapons, hear about the fighting, see the medical instruments up close, and understand the importance of our peninsula to saving Baltimore, and the fledgling country.

Children can participate in the Junior Militia drill, see the soldier encampment, and other children’s activities, like period paper dolls.
