“The Life of a Revolutionary War Solder”

The Newtown Square Historical Society is proud to feature a presentation
revealing a realistic look at a solders life during the American Revolution.   Walter Hook, portrays a private soldier in the 1st Continental Regiment of Foot, prior to and including the encampment at Valley Forge.
Hook begins with recruitment and enlistment, Militia vs Continentals, then talks about personal things such as clothing, equipment, camp life, drills, maneuvers, and weapons.   There will be a display of interesting objects.
As a volunteer soldier at the Peter Wentz Farmstead as well as our very own Newtown Square Day festivities, we welcome our soldier back to Newtown Square and we welcome you, our members and friends to enjoy this wonderful opportunity for an up close talk with this local historian.

Children are always welcome, as we hope to increase their interest in American as well as local History.

Admission is free for everyone, so don't miss this exciting evening and bring a friend.  Refreshments will be served.  Join us at the Dunwoody Village Auditorium at 8:00 P.M. on Wednesday, Oct 16th.  More details can be found on the Society’s Facebook and website: http/
