War of 1812, Mexican Texas War, Civil War, Indian Wars, Spanish American War, WW 1, WW 2,
Korean War, Vietnam eras. (1975). There will be many demonstrators, reenactors, Native wigwams
and tipis, Native American Drumming, early settler encampments, military encampments, battles
and skirmishes. Our demonstrators and reenactors are always eager to engage and answer any
questions the children may have.
There will be old fashioned games for the children and adults to participate in – Tug of War, potato
sack race and horse shoes to name a few. Make a candle, make some rope. Watch the blacksmith
make some nails, help the doctor tend to wounded soldiers and so much more! There will be
numerous merchants and traders for purchasing souvenirs, snacks and drinks as well.
