29 Saturday  
  all day

Second annual "Terror on the Conococheague" re-enactment of 1756 at the Conococheague Settlement. This year's event will commemorate our pioneer ancestors who were attacked by the French and their Delaware Indian allies on the cold, wintery day of February 29, 1756.

Groups will be reenacting the attack on Comb's Fort in what was then Frederick County. Forty women and children took refuge in the house and were defended from the men of Delaware war chiefs Shingas and Captain Jacobs by only two male settlers. During the attack the house inside of the fort caught fire. As chance would have it, the women had been doing laundry at the time of the attack and were able to use the enormous kettle of soapy water to put out the fire. While some men who had been outside of the fort were killed, the Indians left without capturing the fort or carrying away anyone as a captive.

In addition to the two battles, there will be living history displays, many with hands on activities and two camps for visitors to explore, one native and one of British settlers. There will be 18th century games that the entire family can play. Local historians and historical societies will be on hand to help tell the story of the Conococheague Settlement.

This will be a fun and educational weekend allowing for the entire family that examines and celebrates our ancestorÕs courage and hard work that made us the people we are today.

Groups will be re-enacting the attack on David Davis's Fort, very near the site of the Conococheague Settlement, will be reenacted. This action saw the Delaware Indians seizing a barn outside of the fort and launching their attack from it. While the natives were able to kill some of the defenders and burn down some outbuildings, the fort withstood their attacks. The Indians split into two group and left the area before the militia reinforcements arrived.

In addition to the two battles, there will be living history displays, many with hands on activities and two camps for visitors to explore, one native and one of British settlers.
