COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The National Infantry Museum will commemorate the Revolutionary War at their Soldier Center on Saturday, Oct. 17.
The event marks the 234th anniversary of the American-French victory over the British. This was the last major military action of the American Revolution, effectively securing independence for the American colonies following a little over a six year military struggle.
Members of the Coweta Falls Sons of the American Revolution and 1st Hamilton Legion Revolutionary War will set up an encampment at the museum, demonstrating life on the battlefield during the late 18th century.
They will reenact the surrender of General Cornwallis around 2 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
A $5 donation is requested for guests who visit the museum.
