“Come & Take It,” a Revolutionary War encampment, will be held from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, at Fort Morris State Historic Site, 2559 Fort Morris Road, 7 miles east of Interstate 95 near Midway.
The free event is in commemoration of American Col. John McIntosh’s reply to British Lt. Col. Lewis V. Fuser to his demand for the surrender of Fort Morris on Nov. 25, 1778 during the American Revolution.
Soldier talks, musket drills, cannon demonstrations and Colonial music with Jamie Keena will be featured. Jim Sawgrass will give a presentation on the role of the Native Americans in the Revolution as well as discuss their tools, weapons and culture.  
The event will begin at 10 a.m. with a wreath-laying ceremony by the Sons of the American Revolution. At 1:30 p.m., there will be a battle between the opposing forces followed by a dramatic portrayal of the correspondence between the Patriot and British officers.
For more information, call 912-884-5999 or fortmorris@coastalnow.net.
