This program is geared toward our reenactors who are participating in “The Army Returns: Reoccupying Fort McKavett”, our major reenactment event for 2018. This workshop will focus on getting reenactors equipped with the necessary clothing for both 35th Infantry and 4th Cavalry (ca. 1868) impressions.  Items that we will be making consist of Civil War four button sack coats, 1861 sky blue trousers and 1858 pattern forage caps. A materials list will be posted to this page. If you plan to participate in this workshop, please RSVP to Kevin.Malcolm@thc.texas.gov. Site visitors are welcome to attend and see how these historic uniforms would be made by skilled craftsmen in their preparation for the reenactment.
