Musket Firing Demonstration at Bunker Hill

While we were visiting Bunker Hill, we were able to see a park ranger demonstrating the firing of a musket. My kids really enjoyed this. In fact, we were there long enough the kids got to see it twice.

The Park Ranger giving us a little background info about the battle of Bunker Hill and the musket.

He is waiting on the sidelines while another park ranger does some talking.

Check out the glasses that they are required to wear!
