This is something very interesting and something that I am very excited to be a part of.
On Saturday January 15, from 10 am to 4 pm at the Proprietary House in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, the historic governor’s mansion will transform into a living timeline, which is a creation of Revolutionary and Civil War reenactor Tony Sattilaro. We will have people coming from all over the country to take part in this annual event, which will include reenactors from Medieval Times, Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War II, and Vietnam, as well as the Alamo as I will be portraying New Jersey’s lone defender Richard L. Stockton, who ironically was 19 years old like I am at the time of the battle, which led to the death of him, along with more famous names such as David Crockett and James Bowie. My buckskin jacket is coming in the mail, and I already have a coonskin cap, knife, and flintlock. (I can do a pretty good Crockett impression, so perhaps I should play him.)
There may also be reenactors coming from the French and Indian War, as well as the Cuban Missile Crisis (I have heard these guys were amazing). They have come in year’s past, but we are unsure if they are going to attend. The cost of admission is free, but as always, donations are more than welcome because of the ongoing restoration work we are doing, which will probably take several years.
We will be having exhibits both outside and inside, including every weapon and artifact from each era you can imagine. This will be the perfect event for those who have an interest in wars and history, as well as for those who have children that may be interested in history. I hope to see you there!
