On Friday, November 3, students from schools across the state and the general public will have the opportunity to explore numerous education stations teaching topics related to the Civil War in Indian Territory and the battle itself. Living historians will demonstrate military drills, cooking techniques, everyday activities for soldiers, and civilian life. Numerous sutlers will be selling 19th-century reproduction military equipment, clothing, books, and souvenirs. Food vendors also will be on-site. Education Day is free to the public but we ask you to preregister. Education Day activities are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Bus Arrival, Parking, and Departure

Upon your arrival, you must first confirm your registration with event staff. To check in, first stop your vehicle at the registration station (indicated by the green arrow on the map).

After registration check-in is complete, you will be asked to drive forward to the loading and unloading zone (indicated by the red arrow on the map).

Once passengers have unloaded, the vehicle can proceed to the bus parking zone (indicated in yellow on the map). The bus parking zone has room for buses to turn around and is roughly two miles from the unloading zone. When your group is ready to leave, make sure you have a way to contact your vehicle driver, or ask for assistance at the registration station.

The loading is similar to the unloading procedure except that vehicle will be facing the opposite direction, which may require passengers to cross the road. Use extreme caution and contact the registration station if help is required.
