Join us Monday, April 15th at Faulkner Homestead as Iron Work Farm celebrates Patriots Day Spirit. Festivities run throughout the day, including:
- Revolutionary women at the Faulkner Homestead cooking - using a Roman oven - in support of their (Minute)men at the Old North Bridge
- Civil War component - our 12th Georgia Confederates and the
- Yankee 1st Massachusetts Cavalry to camp and skirmish in the woods.
- Faulkner Homestead kitchen and loom room are open for demonstrations.
- Patriots’ Day marks the first day of the Revolutionary War and the first bloodshed of the Civil War. At the - Faulkner Homestead visitors can glimpse both eras. Step back into our local history and see women preparing meals to send to the Concord Fight in April 1775.
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.
