There is an event coming up at the end of the month that I am looking forward to going to. It's at Fort Point, the only Civil War era fort that was never fired upon in anger. It's construction between 1853 and 1861. The event will be staffed by Civil War living history buffs, who will be manning the fort.
The event will be January 31st 10 am-5 pm and February 1st 10 am-2 pm.
If you are in the area please stop by, you will be glad you did.
