Following the battle, we’ll travel 20 miles west and report to historic Fort Richardson State Park, tour historic fort, and sleep in the barracks. On Wednesday, December 31st, you will be mustered out of the army on the parade ground at Fort Richardson.
Frontier history participants should bring lots of warm clothing. Soldiers need thermal underwear and insulating garments (polypro, wool, capilene, thermax, fleece, etc.) to wear under our cavalry uniforms. Participants need sleeping bags/blankets, pillows, canteen, and camping gear, etc. For details and for information on earning the Venturing Living History requirements, email Brian Glass, US Cavalry Outpost Director.
