Become an eyewitness to history, as the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation becomes the backdrop for scenes from the French and Indian War. Watch the local militia led by a Rodger’s Ranger as they discover a French raiding party and witness the skirmish which ensues (skirmishes at 12:00pm and 2:15pm.) Visit the French and British campsites. Talk to the soldiers about their uniforms, weapons and strategy for fighting in the wilderness of the frontier. As you take in the action, remember that the French and Indian War determined not only the future of the Pennsylvania frontier but also events that put the loyal colonials on a path to revolution. There will also be a demonstrations of colonial weapons and 17th and 18th century money ongoing throughout the day.
