Help us celebrate General George Washington’s birthday– his 288th–at Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site. As one of the critical figures in our country’s birth, one or two days honoring him just isn’t enough; we do THREE days-February 15th, 16th and 17th, from 12 PM until 4 PM each day.
Have a piece of cake and prepare to enjoy all that each day offers: demonstrations, topical talks, historical presentations and a take-home craft.
After enjoying his cake, the General will meet visitors at his Headquarters. Mrs. Washington will join him Sunday and Monday. Each day, Balladeer Thad McGregor will offer musical entertainment in the Headquarters’ dining room. Reenactors will perform military drills ending each day with the General reviewing the troops. They are: Saturday– the 5th Connecticut Regiment, Sunday–Lamb’s Artillery and Morgan’s Rifles and the 4th CT Regiment, and Monday the 5th New York Regiment.
Admission is free for all those three days, though donations are accepted.
