The CFHS is excited to announce that we will be hosting a battle reenactment on September 10th and 11th. Join us for a historical journey back to September 11th 1777 when the British army engaged Washington’s troops at Chads’ Ford.  Two timed skirmishes and a firing demo will take place each day.  Additionally, reenactors, camp followers, demonstrators and other historians will be on site for all to engage with.  Live music, food, and beverages will be available.
