Hands-on History: Powder Horn Project

July 20, 1pm4pm.
Free

On July 4th, 1776, the Continental Congress of the American colonies declared independence from Great Britain, signaling the beginning of the American Revolutionary War! Young men, along with Rufus King, joined the fight and became patriots! Rufus fought from 1777 to 1780 in Rhode Island. Soldiers like him would have carried their own powder horns and muskets for battle. They decorated their horns, made from ox or cow horns, with symbols and words of battle and freedom.

Stop by and make your own paper powder horn and celebrate America’s independence!
