All males ages 16-60 were required by law to serve in North Carolina’s militia during the French and Indian War.  These civilians would gather at appointed times during the year to practice military drill and could be used to quickly form an army for defense at times of invasion.  Historic interpreters representing the Rowan County militia will offer on-going displays of military camp life, as well as featured musket firing demonstrations.
