This Saturday, the 155-year-old walls of Fort Point will again echo with the sounds of fifes and drums and tramp of boots as this San Francisco landmark celebrates Civil War Living History Day. Come watch and interact with dozens of reenactors from the American Civil War Association portraying Union soldiers and civilians from the time of the War Between the States at the only Civil War-era brick fort west of the Mississippi.
Fort Point's Civil War Living History Day takes place Saturday, January 30, 2016, from 10 am to 5 pm. Activities include infantry and artillery demonstrations, flag raising and lowering ceremonies, performances by period military musicians, and more. Reenactors are happy to answer questions about history and various aspects of life during the Civil War.
