18th Century Garrison Weekend

There's an event going on at the Old Fort this weekend.  Here's what the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Website has to say about it:

18th Century Garrison Weekend
Saturday, February 15, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Sunday, February 16, 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.

Winter on the Indiana frontier comes alive at the Old Fort. Members of several American Revolution reenacting units will recreate the daily duties of officers, enlisted men and their families in the late 1700’s, including cartridge rolling, musket repair and military drills. Arti- sans will also display period crafts and activities including quilting, spinning and cooking. Warm yourself by the fire and spend Presidents’ Day weekend exploring our heritage and the unique experiences of those who forged our country. Admission is free. Freewill donations accepted.
