Fort Scott National Historic Site (FSNHS) is pleased to partner with the Friends of FSNHS and community members to present Symbols of Sacrifice, a free series of programs that highlight the sacrifice of Americans throughout much of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. The main focus of the event will be a Field of Honor on the historic FSNHS Parade Ground, where a US flag will fly for each service member who has died while serving in theater supporting US military operations during the War on Terrorism. The purpose is to remember the fallen, their sacrifice and their humanity, not to glorify war.More »
