EASTON, Conn. — The Historical Society of Easton dove into the past as it held its annual "A Revolutionary War Weekend" this past Saturday and Sunday as a part of "Celebrate Easton."

The two-day event included a day-long series of demonstrations — from learning about soldiers and civilians, to drill practice, cavalry demonstrations, children's drill patriot camps, and a canon demonstration.

The weekend's highlight was a re-enactment of the historic Battle of Morehouse Farm.

Other events and demonstrations offered a glimpse into what life was like during the period.
