Cannon Firing Course

with 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 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. 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.
