Rochambeau's March Reenactment at Belair Mansion
Join us to commemorate General Rochambeau's march to Yorktown to end the Revolutionary War...and secure the American victory!
Both Continental and British troops will drill in the Mansion garden, discuss camp life and offer visitors a chance to enlist - on the side of their choice! An 18th century ladies' sewing circle in the parlor will catch travelers up on the 18th century gossip. Youngsters can play colonial games in the garden.
At 2:15, Dr.Robert Selig, an expert on Rochambeau's march, will present a talk, "To Yorktown and Victory, or: how Belair in September 1781 played host to Hundreds of People and Thousands of Animals," in the Mansion.

More About Belair Mansion and Stables
One of the oldest landmarks in the town and dating back to 1745, the Belair Mansion was bought by the City of Bowie for just one dollar in 1964 and served as its City Hall until 1978. Now classified as a museum, Belair Mansion offers tours of the grounds five days a week.
The Mansion is also available to rent for your special occasions. With reasonable pricing and a central location it is the perfect place to celebrate a wedding, graduation or hold a business function. Don't forget to swing by the stables while you're there to see where numerous prize winning horses, including the triple crown winner Gallant Fox, were raised for over 250 years.
