Fort McKavett was established by the 8th Infantry Regiment in 1852 and was occupied by the Army until 1859. What did the soldiers do here in the pre-Civil War (Antebellum) era? Come see the soldiers perform drill, fatigue duty, and leisurely activities as they would have 170 years ago. For more information, contact Rhett Kearns at or at 325-396-2358.
