Witness Francis Faulkner, Jr. and his horse as they dash off with food for the Acton minutemen. Colonial women will be minding their sheep and spinning and knitting garments for the menfolk off fighting the British regulars.
Step into another century to cheer on Acton’s Civil War volunteers as they clash with Rebel troops, re-enacting a skirmish of the 1864 Battle of the Wilderness.
