Historic Annapolis manages the gambrel-roofed frame house with the two dormer windows. The building is now interpreted as a tavern or to show off 18th century trades that may have been in the city. An unusual feature of the house is its basement kitchen which is not often open to the public.
More information on the house and its weekend interpretation can be see on the Historic Annapolis web page.

Privates Donovan and Morgan demonstrate.
The Marines will be in Annapolis on occasion to recruit and talk to those interested in participating in living history - especially those interested in the maritime aspect of the hobby and on the British side! What better place than Annapolis!? As many like to participate as a continental officer or soldier - get an idea of the other side of the war by joining the Marines for fun and adventure!

At some events, we can be seen on boats coming in to land before battling the Continental Army. We often also augment other units on the battlefield, or participate in early skirmishes. Camaraderie in camp is amazing with much laughter, always teaching each other the ins and outs of reenacting, and the latest research found on the actual unit and the war.
