This will be a semi-immersion event that showcases "a day in the life of Fort McKavett." Join living historians from all across the U.S. as they go through the daily routine of a frontier post. From the sound of reveille in the morning through tattoo at dusk, the living historians of Co. H, 8th US Infantry will be living the life of a regular stationed at Fort McKavett in December 1852.

Explore the barracks as it would have been, visit the sutler's store and see what was available to the soldiers in 1852, or take a peek into the kitchens and see what they had on the menu. 

Drill and fatigue details will be ongoing throughout the day.
