Currie, NC – Have you ever visited as historic site or event and wondered “How do I become a Re-enactor”? Join us on Saturday, August 25, from 10 a.m. until 12 noon for an informational meeting and orientation as to how to get involved with Living History- i.e. Reenacting and Storytelling in a historical setting. Staff and volunteers at Moores Creek National Battlefield will be providing a brief overview of volunteer opportunities offered in the park and how you can participate. Demonstrations will be provided and Question and Answer sessions will take place to assist you in getting the answers you need. Volunteer Living History opportunities include:
Share the Stories of the American Revolution by joining the park’s Patriot or Loyalist military Living History Groups. The groups portray the citizen-soldiers who answered the call march. Volunteers are trained on the handling and firing of historic muskets and cannons, and how to present yourself as a soldier.

Foodways, including cooking and gardening
Toys and Games
