Coggeshall Farm Museum in Bristol, RIGet Tickets
Step back in time to see what life was like for Revolutionary War soldiers and militiamen in Rhode Island! Camp life and drills were an important part of the day-to-day routine for all soldiers of the Revolution. More time was spent on camp duties and drilling than was spent on the battlefield. Soldiers and militiamen alike would regularly drill and learn the proper handling of arms. Drills would start at the company level, and then the different companies would come together to drill as an entire regiment! Join the men and women of Rhode Island’s own Tew’s Company and be swept up in the sights and sounds of the American Revolution. Kids can even make a paper tricorn hat!
