Join us as we celebrate the 240th anniversary of the Battle of Kettle Creek. Relive colonial history through a host of activities in and around the Historic Square in Downtown Washington, home to the only existing monument honoring African-American Revolutionary soldiers. History comes to life with re-enactors in colonial attire and patriotic colors, music and musket volley, and a colonial parade. Following the parade there will be a dramatic portrayal of the victorious action that occurred at Kettle Creek in 1779.
