11:30 a.m.  Come chat with members of the Plantation household, as they show how expertly they can clean their clothes and — at the same time — share their “dirty laundry” with anyone who is interested.  Both lye and lies are involved.

12:30 p.m.  Writing was a rare skill in 17th-century Maryland.  Come experience what only a select few knew how to do.  See how to create a quill pen, so that you can write in a colonial manner.  (approximately 30 minutes)

1:30 p.m.  Learn how and why the crew of the Maryland Dove uses the ship’s cannons, and why the cannons are called murtherers.  Don’t forget to cover your ears.  (approximately 30 minutes)
