A winter posting at a frontier fort was never an easy task!  Soldiers had to chop wood for the fireplace to keep warm.  They had to cook their own meals.  Military drills and guard duty were part of the daily duties.  Visit with soldiers and feel what it was like to live in a frontier fort during the winter.
