Mount Vernon Encampment
May 4-5, 2024 Mount Vernon, Mount Vernon, VA
INVITATION ONLY - Limited to Continental Line and British Brigade Units
For those attending Mount Vernon May 3 -5, 2024, please see the below note and invitation flier.
On Friday evening May 3rd, there will be a mandatory officer meeting. Every unit is to send their military leader along with one of their camp followers to this meeting. At the meeting we will be discussing the changes that have been put into place due to the issues that occurred during the 2023 event.
2. Beginning this year, the policy of no facial hair greater than a
three (3) days growth will be permitted.
3. We were informed that the MV farm staff will no longer allow
reenactors to use the farm area for the horses. Everything
must be contained to the 12-acre field, this would include all
the horses. After discussion, it was agreed that due to the
lack of ample shade and a lack of a close water source, that
we would not be able to support the horses in the main camp
area. The space that we have would be too congested with
cook areas and such to be able to keep the horses in a
private/quiet area. Therefore, we will be unable to have
horses attend the event. This was not an easy decision as the
dragoons have always added something special to the event
and the crowd always enjoyed their presence.
