1:30 p.m.  What Not To Do When Pirates Attack  In case of attack by pirates, follow these rules:  1) Whatever you do…don’t make them angry.  2) Refer to rule #1.  Come down to the ship and learn what the cannons are really used for.  Don’t forget to cover your ears!  (approximately 30 minutes)

10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Journey Into The Past  Enjoy living history at the Woodland Indian Hamlet, the reconstructed Town Center, the Maryland Dove, and the Godiah Spray Tobacco Plantation.  Make sure to explore the exhibits at the Mackall Barn, Van Sweringen’s Inn, and the reconstructed State House of 1676.  Inside the reconstructed Brick Chapel of 1667 is a crypt, which houses the re-interred lead coffins of Philip Calvert and his family.

10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Explore Archaeology  Discover how archaeologists and historians pieced together bits of the past to reveal St. John’s legacy of liberty.  View some of the 1 million artifacts excavated from the site, and learn what they tell us about the people who once passed through St. John’s doors.  (St. John’s Site Museum, located on the campus of St. Mary’s College of Maryland)
