The event is part of the "Under the Redcoat" weekend that runs through the weekend. It includes programs and demonstrations to entertain, and inform visitors to the historic area of Colonial Williamsburg.

The re-enactors are recreating the occupation of the city 230 years after British General. Lord Charles Cornwallis imposed martial law here near the end of the American Revolution.

Officials say visitors will experience firsthand the challenges and loss of liberties suffered by the city's 18th-century citizens at the hands of the world's greatest military power of the time, The British Army.
