18th Century Trades & Crafts at the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum

Posted By on July 27, 2011

The crew of the Merganser will be participating in the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’s “18th Century Trades & Crafts” event in Vergennes, VT on August 20-21, 2011.

Stroll the grounds with us and chat with 18th-century reenactors as they share their knowledge and skills. Learn about the way of life for those in the American Revolution – men in battle, camp followers that accompanied and assisted the troops, and the shipbuilders and blacksmiths that prepared the fleet. Step aboard Benedict Arnold’s gunboat replica Philadelphia II in North Harbor for shipboard life demonstrations. Meet the Seamstress, Tailor, Embroiderer, Leatherworker, Tavernkeeper, and More!

The site is open to the public from 10am to 5pm both days with both on-going and scheduled presentations all day long.
