Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What are we firing today?
A: Sometimes we fire muskets, other times we fire cannons. Decision is based on volunteer attendance. Check with the Rangers when you arrive at the park.
Q: Where do the demonstrations take place?

Q: Why are the demonstrations canceled?
A: Usually due to weather. We cancel demonstrations during thunderstorms or periods of extremly high heat.
