Davidson's Fort Spring Muster

On May 22nd (2010) step back into history, starting at 10am. Old Fort North Carolina at Exit 73 on I-40 will be the location of Davidson’s Fort Spring Muster. The fort is a replica of the 1776 colonial frontier fort that protected the settlers of western North Carolina from the Indians. The muster will feature historical interpreters and reenactors depicting life on the western frontier of NC at the time of the Revolution, and will include period crafters and Sutlers.

All participants are expected to wear period clothing and to demonstrate a craft or life skill to the public, and all are welcome to sell period-appropriate crafts and Sutlers wares to the public. Several historical reenactment groups will be attending, including “South Carolina Independent Rangers,” “The New Acquisition Militia,” and members of the 1st Maryland Southern Campaign, along with many individual reenactors. Donations from the public will be appreciated. Davidson’s Fort is a 501c3 public charity. For directions and more information visit Davidson's Fort or Old Fort or call 828-668-4831.
