The Backyard Club Digs into History at Fort Stanwix National Monument, Saturday, January 21
Contact: William Sawyer , 315-338-7730
You are invited to become a Junior Archeologist with the staff of Fort Stanwix and dig into history. You will become one of thousands of volunteers across America who study manmade objects from the long ago past for science and for fun. Become an artifact detective and track down the story of the Oneida Carry. Whatever happened to the hundreds of men, women, and children who once lived and worked at Fort Stanwix? Explore the effects of urban development on the site. You will learn how you can protect the artifacts in your own backyard, here at Fort Stanwix and in our National Parks. The Backyard Club at Fort Stanwix National Monument creates connections between youth and parks through diverse park programs and inspires kids to get outside and experience their America.

Musicians in the Continental Army of the American Revolutionary War acted as the radios of their day. They wore the opposite colors of the other troops in their regiment so their officers could see them to relay orders and form lines around them quickly in battle.
