Join us at the newly renovated Swetland Homestead for an on-site Revoluntary War Encampment, featuring The 24th Connecticut Militia Regiment on Saturday, October 2nd from 12p.m. to 5p.m. The 24th Connecticut Militia Regiment, Inc., is a living history organization. Its objective is to educate and encourage interest in the Revolutionary War period of American history through the accurate portrayal of Revolutionary-era soldiers and common people of the Wyoming Valley. Visitors to the encampment will see demonstrations by Regiment members portraying both soldiers and civilians known as camp followers. Camp followers traveled with the Regiment and supported the soldiers with their skills and trades, such as cooking, tailoring, and carpentry. The event is held annually as a learning experience for every member of the family.
