Fort Pulaski will commemorate the 153rd anniversary of the Grand Thanksgiving Fete and Festival of 1862 on Saturday, November 28, 2015. The event will recreate the field day offered by the 48th New York Infantry to celebrate their first Thanksgiving in Fort Pulaski. Our program offers fun for the whole family. The day includes competing in wheel barrow and sack races, dressing up in Civil War era uniforms and dresses, and enjoying the blasts of historical weapons demonstrations.
