Siege of Boonesborough Re-enactment Set for Sept. 22-23
By Jack Winburn
Richmond, KY - Fort Boonesborough State Park will host its annual "1778 Siege of Boonesborough" weekend, Sept. 22-23. Events will include a battle re-enactment on both days at 2pmET. There will also be a "night battle" at dusk on Saturday.
The event commemorates the September 1778 attack on the fort by Native Americans and French Canadians during the Revolutionary War. The settlers in the fort refused to surrender, and the attackers gave up and left.
Guests are encouraged to arrive early and spend the day learning about 18th-century life in Kentucky. There will be militia and settlers' camps, a Native American village, merchants, traders, food and more. The Museum Store and 18th-century Transylvania Store will be open. This event is free with regular fort admission of $8 for adults and $5 for children.
In addition to the reconstructed fort, the park also has a campground, hiking trails, mini-golf, picnic shelters and a gift shop. Fort Boonesborough is located at 4375 Boonesboro Rd, Richmond, KY. From Interstate 75, take Exit 95 to KY 627. On Interstate 64, exit at Winchester to KY 627. For more information, call 859-527-3131.
