The British are coming!

Military re-enactors are returning to George Washington's birthplace on July 12 and 13 to put on a variety of displays and activities common to military camp life during the Revolutionary Period. The re-enactors will be in their military encampment from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

There will be musket firing demonstrations at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. The encampment and firing demonstrations will be conducted by His Majesty's Marines and 5th Battalion, Cumberland County Militia, an elite re-enactment group that emphasizes authenticity in activities, uniforms and 18th Century military camp life.

"Military life was a big part, not only of George Washington's makeup, but of every Washington family member since their arrival in Virginia in 1656," said Richard Lahey, park ranger at the George Washington Birthplace National Monument.

The British never occupied the Washington's Pope's Creek Plantation, but almost every Washington male served in the Continental and British military forces. Prior to the Revolution, the British military was an essential part of George Washington's life.

The George Washington Birthplace historic area will be open from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Friday, July 12 and from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 13. Tours at the George Washington Birthplace National Monument will be suspended on Saturday so visitors can view the historic military encampment and musket firing demonstrations.
