REHOBOTH MINUTEMEN CELEBRATE 20TH ANNIVERSARY

(April 22, 2013)   Formed during Rehoboth’s 350th celebration, the Rehoboth Minutemen (13th Continental Regiment) celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and will participate in several events in May

    Along with marching in multiple Memorial Day parades, the company will appear on May 11 at Rehoboth Community Covenant Church and give presentations at the Fall River Public Library on May 13 and the Attleboro Public Library on May 15.  They will also be visiting local schools.

    The historic reenactment group consists of members representing the original 210 patriots from Old Rehoboth (Seekonk, East Providence and Pawtucket) and Attleboro who answered the call to service on April 19, 1775. About 15 percent of the group have ancestors who were living in the country at the time of the American Revolution.

     The group has joined reenactments from the Plains of Abraham in Canada to the field of Yorktown in Virginia.  Twice they have been invited to set up their white wedge tents at Mount Vernon in George Washington’s yard.

     “We have come a long away, and have done and learned so much,” said Cathy Potter, one of the group’s founders.  They welcome new members into the unit which includes musicians age 12 and over.

     The militia is open to men and women, at least 16 years of age.  Drummers and musicians can be anyone age 12 or older. The unit has three colonial drums to use and five Brown Bess muskets to loan to new members.  Families are welcome to participate as support members for the troops.
