Join the Museum at George Washington’s Mount Vernon, outside Washington, D.C., for their Revolutionary War Weekend living history event, May 6-7, where we will set up our recreated Revolutionary War encampment, including handsewn, full-scale replicas of General George Washington's sleeping marquee, dining tent, baggage tent, and common tents that served as his mobile headquarters while on campaign.

At Mount Vernon's Revolutionary War Weekend, Mount Vernon's serene 12-acre field transforms into a battleground as Continentals, Redcoats, and Hessians conduct military drills, perform cavalry demonstrations, and engage in 18th-century tacticals. Meet the soldiers who are encamped at Mount Vernon, discuss military techniques, and greet General Washington. Revolutionary War Weekend in included in Mount Vernon's regular admission and takes place rain or shine.
