British Occupation Day

Saturday, December 7, 2019 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

Come to the Old Barracks this December as the 17th Regiment of Infantry returns as they first did in December 1776!  This event will commemorate the occupation of Trenton by British troops just weeks prior to the Battle of Trenton, and offer visitors a view into this often misrepresented side of American history.

Throughout the day, visitors to the Old Barracks will meet reenactors of the 17th Regiment of Infantry as they portray the daily lives of British soldiers. These men will drill, perform musket demonstrations, cook over the outdoor camp kitchen, and more in this unique event that will show a side of the Revolutionary War not often seen before.
