About the Reenactors
The Fourth Sub-Legion of the United States, also known as Wayne’s Legion, is a group committed to accurately recreating the campaign and camp life of the Army of the United States from 1792-1796. Specifically, they recreate the 12 American soldiers who were sent to defend Bower Hill, the home of General John Neville, during the Whiskey Rebellion in July of 1794. This unit is based at the Woodville Plantation, the 1774 home of Colonel Presley Neville.
