Tidewater Maritime Living History Association [VA]

The Tidewater Maritime Living History Association seeks to share maritime history and general seamanship knowledge to the public through accurate representation of sailor's lives in the Age of Sail (the 1500s to mid-1800s). The members portray the crew of merchant, naval, and revenue vessels which sailed the East Coast of the United States.

The association provides living history demonstrations, battle reenactments, school programs, parades and memorial dedication activities, and performances of traditional sailor's music. Please see the schedule of events for the association's upcoming appearances.
