About Historic Fort Wayne
Historic Fort Wayne first opened in 1845 and served as an Army post for nearly 160 years. Over 14,000 men and women mustered into service for the Union Army at this site in which 1,480 did not return to Michigan buried in the battle field cemeteries in the South. Historic Fort Wayne is one of a handful of star forts left in the US. The Fort is also one of few remaining sites, in Michigan, where soldiers from the Civil War trained.
About The Historic Fort Wayne Coalition
The Historic Fort Wayne Coalition is dedicated to preserving the history of Michigan men and women who served their country between 1845 and 1973 who either sent material to or personally passed through Historic Fort Wayne as a place of induction to United States military service. We are busy helping the Fort’s caretakers, the City of Detroit Recreation Department with this effort in two major ways. First, we present high quality events that provide ways for the public to enjoy Historic Fort Wayne and see glimpses of how it would have looked when it was garrisoned. We are also very busy preserving and restoring as much of the structures and facilities as possible on the Fort grounds.
