Join us on October 5th and 6th as we explore the pivotal roles that women played in life at the Fort. During this living history weekend, our reenactors will demonstrate the skills, tools, and knowledge that made women in the Colonial Period so indispensible.

Activities will include:

  • Musket firing and cleaning demonstrations and a discussion of the role that firearms played in women's lives
  • Ladderback rush seat weaving demos
  • Tape loom weaving demos
  • Soapmaking demos
  • A discussion of women's hygiene practices

And much more!
