On Saturday, July 4, 2015, you are invited to come and celebrate the day 18th Century style! Festivities surrounding July 4th in the 18th Century can be considered markedly different than traditions of today;yet all the same sentiments can be found in the traditions established by some of the soldiers of the Fort Stanwix Garrison during the American Revolution.

Some of the day's activities will include: a memorial service at the Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary Soldier at 9:30 am, public readings of the Declaration of Independence at 11 am and 1 pm, an 18th Century baseball game which you can participate in at 2 pm , and much, much, more!
