Come join the Greater New Hope Chamber of Commerce, and the Coryell’s Ferry Militia, as we sponsor a three-day Revolutionary War era reenactment of General George Washington’s June 20-22, 1778 encampment and Delaware River crossing, from New Hope, PA. This celebration of our freedom and liberty will include live artillery cannon firing and rifle demonstrations, a Veterans and military parade, Colonial period crafts, 18th Century music, Revolutionary War lifestyle exhibitions, a Colonial treasure hunt for the children, Colonial dress, Liberty Pole, The Regimental Ball and more.
