UNION, NJ - History will come to life on Sunday, May 26 as re-enactors from New Jersey and other states arrive for the Township of Union's Pre-Memorial Day Encampment. The event, in its fifth year, focuses on the life and times of soldiers during the Revolutionary War. The encampment will be held from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
"We are one of the very few townships in the county that provide this experience for our residents and our youth,” said Mayor Michele Delisfort. "To have the opportunity to see, smell, and touch history is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience."
Highlights of the encampment include firing demonstrations and drills, learning about life at camp, and how soldiers cooked outdoors. There will also be live cannon fire.
All activities are free and take place at Friberger Park, behind Town Hall, at 1976 Morris Avenue.
