Sealed Knot Weekend – Mount Edgcumbe
September 24, 2016 - September 25, 2016
Join members of the Sealed Knot Society and see what the life and times of an ordinary Civil War soldier and their families was really like. Experience the sights, sounds and smells(!) of a soldiers camp from the mid-17th century.
You will have an opportunity to see demonstrations of pike, muskets and artillery as well as encounter the activities of the soldier’s base camp where women and children would typically be preparing food and refreshments for their troops. The event is free in the lower park (parking charges apply).
