EVENT DETAILS
Artillery School with the
6th New York Independent Battery


10 a.m. to 2 p.m.


If the thought of learning more about Civil War cannons gets you fired up, sign up for the “School of the Piece”—a muzzle-loading artillery safety qualification program for re-enactors and history buffs— includes classroom and practical instruction.

Instructors from the Sixth New York Independent Battery Civil War re-enactment group and National Civil War Artillery Association will teach registered participants how to safely work around, load and fire two cannons that will be on hand for the day.

The fee for the course is $20, and includes a two-year membership in the National Civil War Artillery Assoc.  The program open to all ages, but participants must be at least 16 years of age to work with the cannon. Pre-registration is required. Spectators are welcome to observe the artillery demonstrations free of charge. 

The Jacobus Vanderveer House will also be open for tours.  Admission is $10 per person.  Members free. Children 12 and under, free.
