Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation

The Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation in Ridley Creek State Park, Media,PA has a beautiful mid-18th century farmhouse and outbuildings.  It is a working 18th century farm with a large number of events throughout the year.  Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation.  While many of their events are Revolutionary War era or later, they do have an annual F&I skirmish.  They put on two engagements for the public; no matter your sentiments, you have a 50% chance of seeing "your" side win, as the British forces win one engagement and the French and their Delaware allies win the other.

I joined the British forces last year and had a great time:

This year's event is coming up on June 21st, and I hope to make it again.  If you're in Southeast PA that weekend, check it out.
