SCHEDULE, ACTIVITIES, AND SITES 4/4/15
After the calendar listing
you will find descriptions of our annual events.
Marching Through Time, Marietta Mansion, usually the third
weekend in April. THE LEGION WILL NOT BE ATTENDING THIS
YEAR, but it's still worth seeing. April 18-19.
A multi-period living history encampment, with reenactors from
ancient times through the Gulf War. Mock battles and
tactical demonstrations are performed all day long, and the public
is invited to visit the camps and examine the participants and
their accoutrements "up close and personal". Open 11 AM to 5
PM, admission is $5 per person, children free (I think!).
Marietta Mansion is located at 5626 Bell Station Rd., Glenn Dale,
MD 20769. 301-464-5291. From I-95/495, the
Capital Beltway, take Exit 20 onto Rt. 450 East, go 4 miles, turn
left on Rt. 193, then left onto Bell Station Rd. and left again
into Marietta. Only handicapped parking is permitted on site
(due to lack of space); all other visitors should follow the signs
to the Recreation Center parking lot and then catch the shuttle
vans back to the site. http://www.pghistory.org/MariettaMansion.html
--Participants should arrive around 9 AM. If the ground is not too muddy you may unload your car at the camp site on Saturday morning, but all cars must be out of the camp area by 10 AM, and NO cars will be permitted back into the camp area until after 5 PM on Sunday.
Roman Days. This is the Twentieth Legion's own attempt to get as many Romans together in one place as possible. There are tactical drill demonstrations, educational displays (writing, architecture, etc.), and more. Children's activities include making mosaics and learning how to march like a soldier. Celts, Greeks, and other ancient types are also welcome. Click here for more information, and also http://romandays.wikispaces.com/
