18th Century Period Correct Dining Flie

Our 10′ x 10′ dining flie is the standard centerpiece of our museum. It offers shade and reasonable fair weather protection from the elements while we wait for patrons or are giving examples of living during the Revolutionary War.

Modern EZ-UP for street festivals

Sometimes we do not have the luxury of setting up on grass areas (which is preferred), so we have to cheat a bit and use a little modern convenience. We do try to ignore and avoid doing so whenever we can.

Conferences & Auditoriums

When it is appropriate we can bring technology into the mix to show what we can do outdoors and bring some of it indoors. This is very useful for school assemblies, history conferences, and other events held indoors.

Interactive Lectures

When someone visits the museum and comes through they are met by one or more of us as historical interpreters that tell the story and basic history of Privateersmen and supporters during the Revolutionary War. It’s more of a discussion than a lecture and audience participation is definitely encouraged!

Living History Demonstrations

One never knows what you may find. Possibly a cooking demonstration, sail or clothes mending, a rousing game of draughts, smoking, everyday tasks, the ringing of the watch bell. Perhaps all, perhaps more. We try to emulate the sights, sounds, smells (just the good ones), and even some touch exhibits to tingle most of the senses.

Black Powder Arms Demonstrations & battle reenactments

This is our oldest and most favored of the demonstrations, and even some skits we like to share with others. We don’t often get to in recent times, as we have a smaller crew now, but we have extensive demonstrations on arms, care & safety, and even proper drill of the time as it pertains to civilian merchant mariners.
