Living History Education Day
March 3, 9 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Fort Towson will host “Timeline,” a living history event on Thursday, March 3. Educational stations will include reenactors portraying time periods from the fort’s beginning in 1824 through the 1870s. Participants can expect to see soldiers in full gear and civilians who dealt with the soldiers at the fort. The reenactors will teach students about the uniforms, weapons, and lifestyles of soldiers, trappers, storekeepers, and other people around the region who were connected to the fort. Visitors will move from station to station to see demonstrations about military life.
There is no charge for this opportunity to learn about our state’s history, but reservations are required. For more information or to make reservations, please contact John Davis at email@example.com or 580-873-2634. Teachers must accompany each group, and a ratio of one adult for every eight students is recommended. Individuals who make a reservation will be met upon their arrival and instructed to proceed to the many educational stations. Fort Towson Historic Site is located one mile east of the town of Fort Towson and three-quarters of a mile north on Highway 70E.
