Rate This Event

 

Join us for the 37th Annual Fort Scott Civil War Encampment on April 27-28, 2019 at Fort Scott Historic Site in Fort Scott, Kansas in honoring the sacrifice of soldiers and civilians from 1861-1865. The roar of musketry, boom of artillery, and neighing of horses will again be heard as Union troops garrison Fort Scott. A variety of programs during the Fort Scott Civil War Encampment offer you the opportunity to learn more about Fort Scott’s role during the Civil War. Fort Scott Civil War Encampment activities begin at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday and conclude following the 3:00 p.m. program on Sunday.

At the Fort Scott Civil War Encampment you can experience the sights, sounds, and smells of the times—soldiers marching or on horse, rifles firing, gunpowder hanging in the air. A variety of interpretive programs will illustrate the role Fort Scott played as a major supply base for federal troops during this pivotal conflict.

In 1842 the Army established Fort Scott to patrol the border between Missouri and Indian Territory (Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska) and to separate American Indians and white settlers. Today, Fort Scott National Historic Site tells the stories of all people who called this area home. The Fort Scott Civil War Encampment will focus on these stories.

On Sunday at 10:00 a.m., come join in a period Church Service. Learn about the logistics of feeding soldiers with “Rolling in the Dough” Bake-house Demonstration at 11:00 a.m. Cavalry, Infantry, and Artillery Demonstrations will continue in the afternoon.
