A winter posting at a frontier Fort was never an easy task. Soldiers had to chop wood to stay warm and cook their own meals. Natives were always around in 1812 and many could not be trusted to be friendly. Visit with the soldiers and feel what it was like to live in a frontier Fort during the winter.
