Children's Program: Join the Civil War InfantrySeptember 3, 2016
10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
Do you think you have what it takes to be a Civil War infantry soldier? Hot uniforms, long marches in uncomfortable shoes, deplorable food, and some very rustic equipment. That's not to mention the stress of combat! Come meet with Ranger Cody at Fort Smith National Historic Site during this children's program and learn about the uniform and equipment of a Civil War soldier including drilling on a wooden musket. The program will include the blank firing of a musket as well! To make reservations call 479-783-3961. The program is free to the public.
