Into the Countryside: Preparations for War

Posted on by dalco

Into the Countryside: Preparations for War

A Revolutionary War Reenactment weekend at the Rebecca Nurse Homestead!

The time is sometime in the summer of 1774 to early 1775. The Port of Boston has been closed in retribution for the Boston Tea Party. The countryside is rising up and the courts in Worcester County have been closed. There is talk of raising minute companies alongside of the regular militia, and “warlike stores” are being gathered, stored, the moved and stored again. Patriotic citizens are doing their part by casting musket balls, rolling cartridges for muskets and cannon, making shirts and
stockings, tents, knapsacks, and cartridge pouches.

Meanwhile, alarmed by the rising of the “country people” General Gage is gathering intelligence from local loyal subjects, and sending patrols of Regulars into the countryside for “exercise”, and to try to locate and seize military stores. Cannon and powder were taken from Charlestown and Cambridge, and there was a patrol that was turned back by local militia at Salem, and there are rumors of a raid not far from John Adams; home in Braintree – could Danvers be next?

This event will be open for public viewing
May 18th 10:00am-3:00pm
May 19th 10:00am-3:00pm
(Please check back here or on Facebook for updated schedule of events)

Adults: $8.00
Seniors: $6.00
Children (6-16) $5.00
