Annual Fall Muster at Fort Osage

Saturday, October 28, 2017

Experience the trepidation felt by the soldiers and civilians living at Fort Osage in 1812 as news of imminent war with Great Britain reaches their remote frontier outpost. Unsure if the small garrison can successfully defend the fort, the soldiers form a civilian militia to augment their meager resources. Women begin to store rations and help bolster the military capacity, not knowing if they will have to fight or evacuate, fleeing for their lives! Cannon practice, musket practice and infantry drills keep the soldier “at the ready” for action. This annual event is nationally recognized as one of the most authentic interpretations of the period.
