Monmouth County Living History, Encampments and Programs

June 19, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Monmouth Battlefield State Park and Friends of Monmouth Battlefield are sponsoring a series of Revolutionary War troop encampments and programs from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday, June 19 and June 20, days previously set aside for the reenactment of the Battle of Monmouth (June 28, 1778) at the State Park in Manalapan and Freehold townships, Monmouth County.

The annual mid-June battle reenactment at the park has again been canceled because of Covid-19 concerns. Instead, reenactment groups will open camps and demonstrate camp life, weapon drills, and battle tactics.

At 1:00 pm on both days, historian Stacy Roth will speak about Molly Pitcher, the name given to the wife of a cannoneer who brought buckets of water to artillery men to quench their thirst on the extraordinarily hot day of the battle and to help cool down cannons after firing. Stacy will speak outside the Visitor Center.
