The 18th Century Christmas event begins with a “roll call”, summoning re-enactment soldiers to their posts just as it would have been done 250 years ago. Throughout the day, living history re-enactors will go about their garrison duties, while taking time to interact with visitors. Demonstrations of both crafts and skills also will be conducted, including cooking, laundering, blacksmithing and artillery drills. The daily schedule includes a Christmas church service, wassail tasting and a special candlelight tour of the fort. On this special occasion, the soldiers will perform a rare nighttime firing of the fort’s cannon.
