Family Programs in the Fort

Build a soldier’s bounty for liberty with hands-on crafts! Young and the young at heart are invited to prepare themselves for the epic struggle for independence in 1776. Cut and assemble a cocked hat or cut and decorate your own rifleman’s cap to show off your patriotic spirit. Equip yourself with your own cartridge pouch and sling. Cut out and decorate your own powder horn, decorating each with a map of your travels, patriotic designs or whatever you want, just like soldiers really did back in 1776.
