American Revolutionary Demonstrations


 Dr. Wm Robinson Museum will host the Von Prueschenks Jaeger Corp/Hessian Riflemen/1776-1781 reenactment group at the museum. This group represents the German Jägers of the American Revolution and represents the German camp followers. The members of this group are dedicated to researching and portraying the life and roles of the Hessian Feldjäger Corps under Johann Ewald during the American war of independence.

The British employed large numbers of German soldiers ("Hessians") during the American Revolution. The use of foreign troops provided the British with a ready source of well-trained and equipped troops. This relieved the British of the burden of raising an army in England. During the weekend this group will set up a “flying” camp, what today we might call a mobile unit in the military, on the front lawn of the museum. There the group will display weapons and basic equipment used during that time period by their group and they will be conducting some basic drills and firing demos along with speaking about the history of these groups and answering questions you may have.
The museum is located at 593 Madison Hill Road, Clark NJ and is on the National Registers of Historic Places.

Admission is free.
