2019 Battle of Monmouth Reenactment

Rate This Event

 

Relive history at the Annual Battle of Monmouth Reenactment on June 22-23, 2019 at Monmouth Battlefield State Park (the original Battlefield Site) in Manalapan, New Jersey. Each year the Friends of Monmouth Battlefield co-sponsors, with the New Jersey Division of Parks and Forestry, sponsor the annual reenactment of the battle in commemoration of the anniversary of the battle fought on June 28, 1778. Hundreds of troops encamp at the park and recreate scenarios of the battle over the weekend. There are also numerous presentations and lectures, tours of the camps, and sutler area open to the public. The Friends of Monmouth Battlefield will be requesting an $10 per vehicle donation to defray the costs of the weekend. A food vendor will be on site and handicapped parking is available.

Battle of Monmouth Reenactment

Bring your family to the Battlefield Saturday or Sunday, and travel back in time to the 1770s. Two armies will be preparing to do battle. Continental Army soldiers retrained at Valley Forge are itching to show off their new skills, while a British-German-Loyalist Army hopes to crush the rebels and restore good government. Come early for a full day of living history. The army encampments will welcome visitors beginning at 9 A.M. Watch soldiers clean their muskets while their women prepare what may be their men’s last meal. Some officers may be drilling their men while others plan for the battle and yet others play cards. If someone is accused of cheating, there may be a duel. Keep track of your children or they may be drafted into one of the armies.

The weekend is sponsored by the re-enactment community, the Friends of Monmouth Battlefield, and the New Jersey Division of Parks and Forestry. The Friends of Monmouth Battlefield will be requesting an $10 per vehicle donation to defray the costs of the weekend.
