A military encampment will be established on the green in Historic Halifax. Vignettes involving delegates from the Provincial Congress, prisoners from Moore's Creek, and civilians around town will all be highlighted. An interpretive Market Square will be established where reenactors can "shop" for produce and goods with period currency as well as watch tradesmen showcase their skills.
