The Sail, Power and Steam Museum, 75 Mechanic St., will host a free re-enactment by the Ancient Ones all day Saturday, Aug. 13. Go back in time with the Ancient Ones while they camp, eat, have archery contests, black powder musket drills, and demonstrate weaving, blacksmithing and period dress while cooking on an open fire and living in their tents, just as our forebears did in the 19th century.

The Ancient Ones are the Maine Chapter of those muzzle loading rifle enthusiasts who are downright fanatics of American History and dress and camp out and actually live, eat and drink this primitive life.

Bring marshmallows to roast, muskets and raccoon-skin caps, and enjoy the sights
