Each year the grand and beautiful Fort Adams of Newport, Rhode Island, holds a Civil War weekend encampment and reenactment. The public event is a great local taste of history.
Civil War weekend at Fort Adam hosts a historical encampment for both Union and Confederate reenactors. While a perfect location for a historical encampment, the weekend also boasts a number of skirmishes between the troops along the water outside the fort.
The battery demonstrated a number of drill movements as well as firing 36 flawless rounds during the weekend.
We look forward to the next Fort Adams event!
