Photos from the Recreation of a Revolutionary War Battle at Catigny Park on June 29, 2002:

Photo of PicnicFox Valley Chapter members, family and friends enjoyed a picnic while touring the encampment of volunteers representing the American and British soldiers. It was fascinating to see how food was prepared and the actual size of a musket ball. There were over 100 volunteers all dressed in uniforms of the period. Here British soldiers invade our picnic!

Photo of Battle The recreation of the Revolutionary War battle was realistic with authentic artillery, mortar and muskets used to give spectators the feeling that they were actually at the battle. You can see that smoke was a typical part of every battlefield.
