Native Americans’ Wars for Independence Lecture

Wednesday, May 4, 2022 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Daniel K. Richter | May 4 at Haddonfield Borough Hall: Native Americans’ Wars for Independence

Camden County College and the Haddonfield Skirmish Committee will present a six-part lecture series on the American Revolution.

From the perspective of our communities, ending with an evening with George Washington, this is part of the build-up for the Skirmish in Haddonfield, NJ on Saturday, June 4th.

The Skirmish is a reenactment of actual ambushes by the Continental militia against the British redcoats as they evacuated Philadelphia on their way to New York. George Washington had given the order to “annoy” the Redcoats and skirmishes happened for this purpose in the peaceful Quaker village of Haddonfield.  The re-enactment will include musket fire and the Redcoats in regalia on horseback charging the Continentals’ cannon. One can also enjoy breakfast with the troops, learn how to sword fight, ride small ponies, participate in patchwork with Betsy Ross, observe colonial artisans in action, learn colonial dancing, and see multitudes of other historical activities. For this exciting day, Haddonfield will be the center of Revolutionary War history in this region.
