Living History Day At 6th Cavalry Museum Set For Nov. 4

Thursday, October 26, 2017

A typical Saturday at the 6th Cavalry Museum will have visitors touring the museum and viewing "In the Footsteps of Sgt. York" World War One exhibit, while learning about the rich military history of the Army Post at Fort Oglethorpe. 

But Saturday, Nov. 4 is no typical Saturday, it’s Living History Day and here’s what you’ll see.  Living historians on the polo field will tell the story of their enlistment, show how they lived in the field and fire weapons.  Museum board member Ross Greenwood will have his cavalry mount and pack mule fully outfitted to show how to care for your mount, the important role they played and the dangers soldiers and their animals faced in combat. 

The museum is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m.  See their website and FB page for more information.

Am I Alone?

 Am I alone seems to be quite apt as I begin to form sentences, thoughts and concerns regarding the state of this country.
