The East coast was in open revolt in the late 1770s. But what was happening on the frontier? Take a trip to a trading post in what was called the “Northwest Territory” at the time. Witness what it was like to live in a post garrisoned by troops of the Continental army. Interact with civilians and merchants as they trade their wares, while the garrison keeps a close eye out for the British. Demonstrations will include military and civilian life, period cooking, artisans, and weapons.
