1775 Battle of Gloucester Re-enactment

You don’t have to be a History Geek to be totally wrapped up in the Battle of 1775 re-enactment Saturday morning off Pavillion Beach!   The narrated re-enactment, having the 3 Schooners, Lewis H. Story, Fame and Ardelle, all authentic to the period, and the smell of gun powder gave you a taste of the battles that our Fort defended in her early years.   I’ll be looking forward to reading Joe Garland’s book “Guns off Gloucester.”  Published in 1975, as it told the tale of what Garland wrote as “Gloucester’s resolute role in America’s fight for freedom.”

  2. Thank you! Wouldn’t it be great to stage the first attack at Wingaersheek Beach and show how Coffin’s enslaved men ( held off Lindzee’s attempt to pilfer sheep?
