The year is 1812 and word of the declaration of war against Great Britain has just arrived at Fort Osage and the small garrison of soldiers fear an attack is imminent.  In order to bolster their defensive force, civilians are conscripted to form a militia.  Watch as members of the 1st US Infantry prepare for war.  Musket and cannon demonstrations highlight this authentic and impressive event!
