People often remember their history classes as boring and dry. Fort Macon State Park will change some of that Saturday and Sunday, April 22-23 with its popular Living History Weekend reenactments.
The First NC Volunteers/11th NC Regiment and other reenactment groups will portray troops from the Civil War era from 10am-4pm each day, offering visitors a glimpse back in time. Here, history is more than a lesson in a textbook – it's a weekend long visual example that one can question and touch and explore first hand. Activities include military drill and weapons demonstrations, as well as firing of some of the large artillery pieces located in the fort.
