The reenactment of the Battle of Monmouth is an annual event at the park in late June. When you visit, you will pass enlisted men cleaning their weapons or idle away their time, and watch the women of the army cook, mend, and wash. You may encounter a drum major drilling his musicians or a court martial. At the parade ground, watch soldiers drill or artillerists fire their cannon. But we must alert you to keep an eye on your children, or the recruiting sergeant may have them drilling with wooden muskets!
