Annual Summer Encampment

The highlight of each year's events for Glover's Regiment is the group's annual summer encampment at Marblehead's historic Fort Sewall. The fort offers an unusually picturesque site for the event, situated on a rock bluff overlooking Marblehead Harbor and Salem Bay. Click here to view images of Fort Sewall and Marblehead Harbor.

In the "bowl" of the fort, the Regiment establishes a Colonial camp, complete with tents, cooking fires and a dining fly, craft activities (marine rope work and knot-making; leatherwork; needlework; and clothing repairs), and a selection of 18th century merchants (called "sutlers") where both Colonial campers and the visiting public can purchase reproduction 18th century goods -- pottery, lanterns, jewelry, furniture, iron goods, clothing, hats, and sundries.

Fort Sewall

Established in 1644, Fort Sewall is the oldest historical site in Marblehead, first built in the middle 1600s and maintained for the next 200 years. As detailed in Priscilla Sawyer Lord and Virginia Gamage's book, "The Spirit of '76 Lives Here," the fort was Marblehead Harbor's last defense if an enemy approached by sea, and stood over the town for generations as a sign of protection and reassurance.

It is probably most famous for protecting the USS Constitution from British ships in 1814. Named for Samuel Sewall (longtime Marblehead town official and state and national representative who in 1814 became chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court), the fort has been under the jurisdiction of Marblehead's Board of Selectmen since 1922.
