From August 15-17, 2014 Orleans, MA will be celebrating the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Rock Harbor. The British sent a ransom note threatening to burn the Salt Works if the Town didn't pay $1,000. Orleans refused, the British came ashore and were repelled by the Militia. Join us for an encampment by the Yarmouth Minutemen on the Village Green and other re-enactors for a three day living history event. Skirmishes will take place at Rock Harbor and Eldredge Field. Re-enactors will interact with visitors and residents downtown during the day. For more information go to www.yarmouthminutemen.org or www.orleanshistoricalsociety.org.
