Saturday, August 5, 2017:  Fort Mackinac stands high on a hill, protecting Mackinac Island.

Great view of the harbor below.

Soldiers were checking their pocket watches because it was almost time to show their skill on the parade ground.

They were 1800s history re-enactors, marching and showing visitors what life was like back then.

A demonstrated their skill in loading and firing weapons of the period.

This canon looks to the horizon and any potential invaders.

Soldiers demonstrated loading the canon.

Then it was set off with a huge roar.  Nicely done!

Quote of the day:    Such was the life of a soldier back then.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
