1812 Winter Garrison

February 18, 2023

Saturday Only: 10 am - 5 pm

Winters are harsh on the frontier! Freezing temperatures and snow make for a difficult life at a winter posting. Chopping wood and preparing meals are carried out daily by assigned soldiers. Military drills and guard duty are also part of the soldiers' duties. Visit with the soldiers. Witness what is is like to live in a frontier fort during the winter months.
