Event Navigation

Have you ever wondered what camp life was like for 19th-century soldiers, especially during the American Civil War?

On June 24, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., the Fort Towson Historic Site will be hosting a come-and-go program to teach visitors about the camp life experiences of Union soldiers. Visitors will get to view various reproduction items that will provide them with an understanding that military life in that era was comprised of much more than fighting, marching, and drilling.

This program is free with the price of general admission to the site.

Monthly programs and special event updates can be found on the Fort Towson Historic Site’s Facebook page or at www.okhistory.org. For more information, email fttowson@history.ok.gov or call 580-873-2634. The Fort Towson Historic Site is located north of U.S. 70 near Fort Towson.
