In December, the 17th Regiment of Infantry returns to the Old Barracks as they first did in December 1776! The event will commemorate the occupation of Trenton by British troops just weeks prior to the Battle of Trenton, and offer visitors a view into this often misrepresented side of American history.

​Throughout the day on Saturday, December 1st, visitors to the Old Barracks will meet reenactors of the 17th Regiment of Infantry as they portray the daily lives of British soldiers. These men will drill, perform musket demonstrations, cook over the outdoor camp kitchen, and more during this unique event that will show a side of the Revolutionary War not often seen.

Included in regular cost of admission: $10-Adults, $8-Seniors/Students, Free-Children 5 and under/Active Military/Members of the Old Barracks Association.

Parking for this event is free and conveniently located in the small lot directly next to the museum.
