Fashions of 1776 along with Historic Tales with be presented by the Rehoboth Minutemen/13th Continental Regiment on May 13, 2023 from 1:00 – 3:00 PM at the Attleboro library. The purpose of our organization is twofold: First, to accurately recreate the lifestyles, clothing, equipment, drill, battle scenarios, and encampments of the men, women, and children of the original 1774 Company, as closely as possible. Secondly, to provide an educational resource and further the public’s understanding of the American War of Independence.

The fashions of 1776 with historic tales will showcase the Patriots of Attleboro along with other local communities, who played a role in the fight for independence. By using researched reproduction clothing and accessories, we will demonstrate the difference between a continental soldier, a colonial minuteman, sailors, farmers, and man of substantial wealthy. We will also explore the myth of colonial flags, recite colonial poems and songs of the era. And to quote Abigail Adams, we will “Remember the Ladies” We will also discuss the vital role women played in the fight for independence.

Seating is limited so please scan the QR code to register or call the library to reserve your seat today!
