Salute to the Fort

About

The History Center presents Salute to the Fort on Tuesday, October 22, 4-8pm, commemorating 225 years of continuous American military presence in our community. Interactive activities include a rare opportunity to touch General Anthony Wayne's personal camp bed, sampling foods inspired by Legion of the United States rations, and guided walking tours of fort sites presented by ARCH. Tour the History Center's exhibit featuring Allen County's continuing American military story from 1749-2019, visit with local Miami Indian representatives and learn about regional battlefields with archaeologists from Ball State University. The highlight of the event will be 15 rounds of celebratory cannon-fire from replica King's Howitzers, ignited by local dignitaries, in partnership with Historic Fort Wayne and the 1st Sub-Legion of the United States.
