KITTERY, Maine (AP) - The Friends of Fort McClary says a Revolutionary War encampment this weekend is aimed at being the biggest yet.

Revolutionary War re-enactors are holding cannon-firing, cooking and craft demonstrations throughout the weekend at Fort McClary at Kittery Point. British and American militia re-enactors also are recreating the battle for the fort on both days.

The event itself is free to the public but the state park entry fee still applies.

The fort, which dates to the late 17th century, was built to defend Portsmouth Harbor and what’s now known as the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. It’s named for a New Hampshire native who was killed during the Battle of Bunker Hill.
