Sunday, November 12, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

The Washington County Regiment of North Carolina Militia, host living history organization for Sycamore Shoals, will present a Colonial Harvest Celebration inside Fort Watauga. In Colonial America, before Thanksgiving was declared a national holiday, each colony or community observed days of thanksgiving usually after the harvest had been brought in or after a significant military victory. Join the Washington County Militia for their annual Harvest Home Activities. Harvest events throughout the weekend will include; a reading of colonial governor Richard Caswell’s Thanksgiving Proclamation, open hearth cooking, flintlock musket and rifle demonstrations, militia drill and training, and many more aspects and demonstrations of daily life on the colonial American frontier.
