The First Pennsylvania Regiment at Daniel Boone Homestead


Daniel Boone HomesteadWe paid a visit to the Daniel Boone Homestead on a dreary Sunday in hopes to view the First Pennsylvania Regiment. No disappointment! Some of the fellas were there tuning up their skills on the shooting range. Seems there is a competitive side to all of this, with exhibitions forthcoming versus other groups. Luckily, we were able to spend some time chatting with some of the men. A great bunch they are, too.

Experience the beauty of Muzzle Loading Long Rifles

Daniel Boone HomesteadThe First Pennsylvania Regiment appear in period garb, adding to the illusion of experiencing a bygone era as the smoke billows out the barrels of long rifles. Check out those speedloaders!

Join in as we listen to a member of The First Pennsylvania discuss the regiment's origins, being called into battle, and more. I know, we were so excited, we did not notice the trash can! Great op to use pip, eh?
