Event Calendar - 2018

Battle of the Kegs

Due to inclement weather on January 6th, The Battle of the Kegs is rescheduled for Saturday January 20th from 12-4PM

We want our Historical Society friends, volunteers, audience and performers to be safe during these harsh winter weather conditions!

We will have an entire museum exhibit dedicated to story of the Bordentown Colonists attack with gunpowder filled kegs on the most powerful Navy in the world in 1778 just off the Colonial Capital and Port of Philadelphia. Children and adults are welcome to participate in activities and crafts which they can take home with them. Musical performers “The Sea Dogs” will delight your fancy in period costume with their signature sea shanties and Francis Hopkinson's "Battle of the Kegs" ballad. Partake in some snacks and refreshments.

Come be a part of a truly "revolutionary" event in American History!

Admission is FREE, but donations are greatly appreciated!
