Machias to commemorate Revoluntionary War's 1st naval battle during Margaretta Days

MACHIAS - Whether one loves history or wants to learn more about it, Margaretta Days is the place to be.

The Machias festival celebrates the battle of the Margaretta, the first naval battle of the American Revolution, and the Battle of the Rim, an equally important battle.

 

Margaretta Days offer a chance to step back into the year 1770. There will be reenactments, colonial food, entertainment, and music.

 

This year's event is on Saturday at the University of Maine in Machias and is free to attend. The public is encouraged to dress up on period attire.
