The British March Through Redding

History comes alive in Redding with reenactors recreating how the British marched through Redding during the revolutionary war. Educational, detailed and above all else, fun, as spectators, young and old alike, enjoyed watching how members of the Brigade of the American Revolution brought to life the 1777 march the British did on a mission to dismantle the Continental Army Supply Depot in Danbury.

Addendum: The raid on Danbury was a pyrrhic victory for the British as the Continental Army found their footing as a viable military force to be reckoned with, much to the surprise of the British who considered the patriots to be ragamuffins, not able to deal with the military prowess of the British Empire
in any way, shape or fashion.
