BCHS EVENT:War of Outposts
Saturday & Sunday, April 12 & 13, 2014,
Saturday, 11 - 4:00 pm
Sunday, 11 - 3:30 pm 

"The War of Outposts," hosted by the Bergen County Historical Society, Outwater's Militia and the IV NJ Volunteers will take place on April 12th and 13th, 2014. This event will feature re-enactors from both sides of the conflict and will bring to life the running battles that criss-crossed Bergen County during March and April of 1780, saw the burning down of the County Court House, and saw two important conflicts at New Bridge, due to its strategic location.
Historic New Bridge Landing and the Steuben House saw more action during the American Revolution than any other surviving home in America. It is also the original location of the final battle during the 2 day incursion into New Jersey by Crown Forces in March, 1780.
Battle reenactments will occur both days. 18th Century medical display and sutlers will be located in the Steuben House. Children will get the chance to experience what it was like to be a Continental or British Soldier, with special drills at 2pm on Saturday and 11:30 on Sunday. Children can also participate in a Historical Scavenger Hunt.
Selections from BCHS collections will be on exhibit. All 3 Jersey-Dutch Houses will be open, connected by a gravel walking path. The path recreates the relationship - chatting distance - between the road and the early houses of Bergen County. Wear walking shoes/boots. Free parking is available or take a train on the Pascack Valley Line from Secaucus via NJ Transit to the New Bridge Landing Train stop. $7 adult, $5 children, BCHS members free, covers both days. Most of our events are free to members or are a reduced price, like at the Holiday Concerts in December.
