The Battle of Plymouth - Day 4

What a beautiful sunny day, light winds and many more people!  As mentioned before, this weekend is the Battle of Plymouth Living History Weekend. No, we didn’t plan to be here for the event but it’s great when things work out like that!

Everything kicked off around noon on Friday when the troops began to set up their camps and honestly, it would take a LOT of words to explain everything…I’ll let the pictures do the talking.  Click HERE if you need a script of the Battle.

And then the Battle of Plymouth begins on water and land (Roanoke River)

Live music by the Potecasi String Band

And a little more education from the Dueling Narrators: Confederate and Federal “recollections”

It was a very nice day – full of information I should have already known – organized, factual and well attended.  I noticed several out of county, state license plates.

A lot of work was involved to make this event happen…and this was the 29th year of effort!  Great job Port o’PlymouthMuseum!

Stay tuned as we depart Plymouth and make a short hop across the Albemarle Sound to Edenton!
