Chestertown Tea Party Festival, 23 May 2015

The Marines had a great time at the Chestertown Tea Party Festival on 23 May.  We were able to provide demonstrations to the public, participated in the parade, had a street shoot out, a great time paired with the Maryland Loyalists, and awesome camaraderie with all.  The 1st Virginia Regiment and 1st Delaware were also there as opposing forces.  Lots to do at this event, so look for us to be there again next year!

Mount Vernon Battle Reenactment - 9-10 May 2015

The Mount Vernon Battle Reenactment was very well organized on one of the great estates within our country - George Washington's Mount Vernon!  The event had everything you could hope for - tours of the mansion, British and Continental camps to walk through, sutlers, and all of the amenities that Mount Vernon has to offer.

Mt Harmon Plantation Reenactment

     The Marine contingent participated at the Mount Harmon Battle Reenactment on 25 and 26 October led by Sergeant Shackleford as the Captain was in charge of leading the battles these two days.  

     There was a little bit of everything taking place at this event.  From participating in the battles both days, attending appropriate meetings, ensuring they were lined up in formation and drills, as well as having a bit of time to shop with the sutlers and hang out at the Tavern on Saturday evening with friends - there was something for everyone at this one! The Marines showed up in force and welcomed Marine Private Morgan!

Mount Clare Museum, Baltimore, Maryland

The Maryland State Marines attended a small demonstration at the Mount Clare Museum on 13 September in Baltimore, Maryland. We set up right in front of the house and were able to talk to the public that came over from the B&O Railroad Museum train ride.
