The Revolutionary War returns to New England soil this weekend in Massachusetts. The annual reenactment known as Redcoats and Rebels is thought to be the largest war reenactment in the country.
Event Coordinator Jim O’Brien says it features more than 1,000 soldiers in full period costume.
“You forget about today,” said O’Brien. “You really forget who you are. For that moment, you are back in the 18th century. It really is just a unique experience that has immediate gratification.”
O’Brien expects eight to ten-thousand visitors to attend the reenactment over the two days. The event takes place in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.
