BURWELL — A re-enactment of life at an 1870s infantry outpost is scheduled at Fort Hartsuff State Historical Park near Burwell in central Nebraska.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission said the event is set for the weekend of April 13-14.
Uniformed soldiers will occupy the barracks, guardhouse, blacksmith shop and other buildings on the post. Activities portrayed will include drill and guard duty, cooking and cleaning details, cannon firing, sick call, mail call, parade inspection and a grand review on the Great Plains Army post.
Officers will walk the grounds as the women of the garrison conduct special activities for themselves and the enlisted men. — AP
