June 2: The British are Coming! Skirmish on the Highway

Posted: 17 days ago

Once again, it’s a big day for the Indian King Tavern Museum. Re-enactors portraying the Red Coats and the rebel Colonialists will face-off in a skirmish in downtown Haddonfield at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 2.  

The sixth annual re-enactment marks the 240th anniversary of the conflict in Haddonfield on the soldiers’ march to Monmouth, New Jersey, where there was a battle four days later. Hosted by the Friends of the Indian King Tavern Museum, this event is free and family friendly, and tells the tale of Haddonfield’s rich Revolutionary War heritage. Haddonfield residents and shop owners are warned to bury their valuables as the Red Coats will be “looting and pillaging.”
