Meet militia re-enactors from two time periods and participate in pike and musket drills, dress like a colonist and end the day with musket firing demonstrations (3:30pm). We are teaming up with the Saugus Public Library for a fun day of living history to support and inspire our young readers! The great state of Massachusetts; its heroes and history is the theme of the Saugus Summer Reading Program!

The Salem Trayned Band recreates the dress and drill of the first militia company in Massachusetts: 1629 – 1637 and the Lexington Minute Men portray those in the company who served valiantly throughout the American Revolution: 1775 -1781.
