Return to Mount Vernon

The Continental Line will celebrate its 20th Anniversary by returning to Mount Vernon, the home of our Commander-in-Chief. Designated a "Full Line" event, all member units are invited to come celebrate 20 years of our rich, historic interpretation.

George Washington

Scenario:

It is the fall of 1782, a year after the surrender at Yorktown. The news of American victory over the British has made its way through the countryside. Diplomatic discussions are underway to negotiate a treaty granting full independence to the American colonies. Although it will take several more months to complete this treaty, hope has been planted for the birth of this new nation. General Washington has opened his home to the American people for a weekend of festivities to honor this great accomplishment and to celebrate independence from the British. Troops, who have not been mustered out of the service, will demonstrate their military skills in honor of General Washington and the brave soldiers who fought for liberty.
