Join Museum of the Cape Fear in the Festival of Yesteryear, an annual living history event. Featuring both the Colonial Period and the War of 1812, (also known as the Regency Period), visitors will understand how our fledgling country entered into a second war with Great Britain only 30 years after winning the Revolutionary War. Historians debate about it being a second war of independence. The day will feature re-enactors representing both time periods and panel displays will show what happened those 30 years between the two wars.
