Event Description

January 13 & 14, 2018 - The Brigade of the American Revolution Southern Region and 1st Continental Artillery Regiment (Harrison's Regiment) will be hosting a weekend-long Artillery Conference at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown.  This 2-day event will include scholarly lectures, practical "best practices", round table discussion and hands-on sessions on the application of the military science of artillery during the American Revolution, and the finer points interpreting it accurately and safely through living history.  This event will be invitational to the British Brigade and The Continental Line member units as well.  Each unit will be allowed two participants, a commander and a second, who will need to do a 15-minute presentation on the history of their artillery unit.   Unit guns are encouraged, but a gun is not required as the museum will allow us to use their field pieces.   Please wear your kit for the weekend.   There will be a private tour of the museum on Sunday Afternoon.   Lunch on Saturday and Sunday will be provided.  A special room rate is available at the Wyndham Garden Hotel, 201 Water Country Pkwy, Williamsburg, VA (757-253-6444)    Please register by sending an email to Gray Collins using the form at the bottom of the page.
