    Default Monmouth Battlefield Reenactment

    Have you ever gone to one of New Jersey's many Revolutionary Reenactments? There are a number to choose from but Monmouth Battlefield is the largest. If you haven't gone - you should really check it out. If you have gone, let everyone know what you thought.

    Last years was awesome because it was the 225th anniversay. I just wish that New Jersey advertised all the things that New Jersey has to offer a lot more. There weren't even any signs along the highway to tell anyone what was going on. Oh well - that is why I out this website together - to show everyone the great things to do in New Jersey.

    Here is a collage from several years ago of the Monmouth Battlefield Reenactment


    It's great to actually learn how the army moved around, how the women came along with so many of the soldiers. You get to see how people lived back then. The whole even just makes history fun for the whole family - fromt he camp tours to the reenactment, to the special events for kids.

    The Monmouth Battlefield Reenactment is held the last weekend in June. This year it should be on June 26th and 27th. Last year's was huge because of the 225th anniversary - but they're always really great.

    If you have any other questions, let me know. I hope you stick around on the forum, and please make sure you come back and post your thoughts about the reenactment if you go.

    [EDIT] May 8th there will be the Centennial Fair at Washington's Crossing State Park in Titusville. For details look at the Centennial Fair thread.

    Default Reenacting at Monmouth

    In order to be part of the reenacting you must join one of the reenacting military units invited to attend the event. Most, if not all the units, require that if you are under 18 your parent or guardian must also join the unit. To participate on the field you must be at least 12 years old and you must be at least 16 years old to handle a musket or crew a cannon. Between the ages of 12 - 16 you must be a fifer or drummer to be on the field. There is also plenty to do in the camps as well and to help out in other ways. Got to Monmouth,meet the units and ask about joining. They can provide you with the info you need and will train you if you join.

    Default Joining reenactment units

    Drummerboy

    At least with my unit, it is a matter of legal and insurance liability that a parent or guardian also join. But there are units that have a stronger music program than mine does and they may well accept interested young men such as your self without parent participation. To get a list of different units out there try several of the national organizations that have local reenactment units as members. My unit belongs to two, The Continental Line and The Brigade of the American Revolution. Web sites are www.brigade.org, www.continentalline.org, and also www.britishbrigade.org. Also visit with reenactment units at monmouth this year, June 26-27 and speak to them directly.

    Too bad you wont' be able to make it - but I'm sure you'll have fun at the golf camp. Hopefully your friend will be there and he'll get some information for you guys. I'll have my New Jersey history shirt on if he wants to try finding me...

    A pretty cool reanactment of a famous civil war battle. It was pretty realistic.

    Director958 - I merged your thread with this existing one on the Battle of Monmouth. I have to correct you though, the Battle of Monmouth was the longest battle during the Revolutionary War. After wintering in Valley Forge and training, Washington's army went to head-off the British Army which had wintered in Philadelphia and were now heading toward New York. The Battle lasted 2 days in extreme heat, more men were killed by heat stroke. In the end, the British escaped and went up to Sandy Hook where they took boats over to Manhattan.
    New Jersey is the only state honored by two resorts at Walt Disney World. The Beach Club Resort, modeled after Historic Cape May and The Boardwalk Resort, after Atlantic City. If the Jersey Shore is good enough for Walt Disney to recreate, isn't the REAL Jersey Shore even better for you and your family?

    Director - don't worry about it. I figured you knew and I was going to pm you privately about it or just change your post to say "Revolutionary War". But you really wouldn't believe how many people don't know anything about the Revolutionary War. When sitting with the crowd, some of the comments people make sometimes are really off the wall.

    Default how far do they go?

    These renactments, they are based on real events, that is a given. But should they not reenact the whole thing by having the same prices as they did way back then, now that would be something.
    My favorite place in the US is Atlantic City
