Cantigny Revolutionary War Reenactment
More than 400 Revolutionary War living history actors will be on site, many of whom will pitch tents and camp on the grounds. Visitors are invited to stroll through the authentic encampment and witness how civilians and soldiers lived in the late-1700s. Redcoats and American patriots will converge on the Cantigny Parade Field twice each day to engage in mock battles complete with cannon and musket fire. The skirmishes are narrated from the sidelines to help spectators understand the action.
