Re-enactors—the folks that time-travel to the 18th century to make possible Revolutionary War living history.

June 15-16, 2013, over 500 re-enactors from the United States and Canada will come to Monmouth Battlefield to commemorate the 235th anniversary of one of the largest battles of the American Revolution. All are members of recreated Revolutionary military units. They are highly trained, carry modern insurance policies, and belong to one of three re-enactor umbrella organizations: the British Brigade, the Continental Line, and the Brigade of the American Revolution. To ensure safety, only members of one of these three umbrella organizations are allowed to participate. The re-enactor units hosting this year’s event are Helm’s Company, 2nd New Jersey Regiment, and King George’s 43rd Regiment of British Foot.
Straw, firewood, and potable water will be provided for re-enactors. The Friends of Monmouth Battlefield will reimburse artillery companies fielding 3-pounder or larger field pieces for both days $150 for powder expended. Re-enactors bringing horses for the weekend will be reimbursed $50 (within New Jersey) or $70 (out-of-state) for their travel expense. Reimbursement checks should be collected at the gift shop Sunday morning between 9:30 and 10:30 A.M.
Hay will be provided for our four-footed friends.
