They’ll pitch tents on grounds occupied by the British in 1780 and present a glimpse of life during the war years. At 1:30 p.m. both days, cannons roar and soldiers will skirmish. There will also be war tribunals, artillery demonstrations, fife-and-drum concerts, and camps to visit. There’ll be authors, activities for kids and festival food.
