“You are to be exceedingly watchfull upon the Motions of the Enemy…and prevent, as much as possible, without risquing too much, the Enemy’s gaining Provisions or Supplies from the Country….”

  Gen. Washington to Gen. Weedon

  September 23, 1781

 

Event Scenario

 

It is autumn of 1781 and a large British force under General Lord Cornwallis has occupied Yorktown and Gloucester Point since early August. A British raiding party has descended on Warner Hall by water to gather forage for the two fortified posts.

 

The Gloucester militia has been in the field for weeks and will try to repel the raiders.

 

On Sunday afternoon, the event jumps ahead a few weeks to the beginning of the Siege of Yorktown. A small version of the Battle of the Hook will take place to cap off the event.

 

Visitors are invited to visit the camps and sutlers and watch the battles as history comes alive at Warner Hall on September 14 – 15.
