July 6 — Witness to Battle: Two Armies Clash on the Fields of BirminghamSponsored by Birmingham & Thornbury Historical Commissions

There the two armies clashed in the largest, single-day battle of the Revolutionary War. Tour the 18th-century Thornbury Farm which sits in the heart of the battlefield. The 1709 farmhouse bears a stone patch where a cannon ball tore into the thick stone walls. Visit the 254-year-old Birmingham Meetinghouse which served as a hospital for wounded soldiers in 1777 and still has an active membership today. Guides will interpret the battle action contrasting war with the local Quaker Testimony of Peace.
