Annual Revolutionary War Weekend At George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate

You can get a chance to step back in time during Annual Revolutionary War Weekend at George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate in Mount Vernon, Virginia. This two-day event is one of the largest Revolutionary War re-enactments in the region. You can watch hundreds of Continentals, Redcoats, Hessians, cannons, and cavalry in action on the estate.

Throughout the weekend, learn more about life in the 18th century, discuss military techniques, and watch battle re-enactments. Wander through the encampment and meet the soldiers. This family-friendly event features a youth muster on the bowling green and even meeting General Washington! A host of other Revolutionary War-themed activities can be found throughout the weekend.

The event features General Washington and General Lafayette on-site both days, exact replica of Washington’s campaign tent on display/in use (From the American Revolutionary War Center), opposing force battles both days to also include a Sunday Morning Skirmish, camp life interpretation for visitors in both American and Crown camps, military medicine interpretation with Dr. James Craik, Physician General of the Army, sutlers (in limited numbers) on-site, and display of Period Weapons in the Education Center Lobby and conversation with curators.
