March To The Past

The Friends of Fort Defiance will host their annual March to the Past living history on Saturday, June 14 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Fort Defiance Civil War Park and Interpretive Center.

There will be live demonstrations of quilting,  clothing, children’s games, and period medicine as well as demonstrations of military camp life, drill, and firing of long arms and artillery.

Be sure to bring your appetite as hot dogs and baked goods will be available for purchase to support Fort Defiance.

March to the Past is sponsored by Friends of Fort Defiance, Baxter’s Battery and Porter’s Battery.
