Spring in Early Cincinnati:
An 1803 Muster and Social

April 22 & 23, 2017

 

Before the war of 1812, militia musters were not just for drilling—they were social opportunities for men and women alike. Linigle’s Company of  Ohio Militia will join Heritage Village Museum for an 1803 event that will include drilling, civilian demonstrations, tea, and hands-on activities. Come and celebrate the year Ohio became a state!
