Fort Union to Host Living History Weekend
Every year, Fort Union hosts its Living History Weekend around the Labor Day holiday and this year will be no different.
According to the Bismarck Tribune, this year Fort Union will feature the story of the Northwest Company's purchase of the fort southwest of Williston from the American Fur Company.
From the Fort Union website:
Every Labor Day weekend, Fort Union hosts muzzleloaders, buckskinners, and fur trade re-enactors. Black powder shooting demonstrations are conducted, tradesmen work in the blacksmith and carpenter shops, and trade re-enectments take place in the trade house reception room. The highlight of the weekend is the Last Bell Tour. After the last bell is rung, closing the fort for the night, visitors are led through a series of scenes related to an event in the history of the fort.
