March to the Past

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Have you ever wanted to experience life in the 19th century? Look no further than Fort Defiance Civil War Park and Interpretive Center's upcoming event, March to the Past. On Saturday, May 13 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., visitors can step back in time and get a glimpse of what life was like during the Civil War era.

Partnering with The Friends of Fort Defiance, this event promises to be an immersive experience with 19th century living history demonstrations. Attendees can witness Civil War camp life, watch musket and artillery firing, learn about period cooking, and even participate in fun children's activities.

Additionally, this year will include a special performance by the Cumberland Winds Fife and Drum band from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. The program will trace the development of fife & drum music through history.

William Parker, Historical Interpreter at Fort Defiance, shared his gratitude for The Friends of Fort Defiance, without whom these events wouldn't be possible. "We're lucky to have such a passionate group dedicated to preserving Clarksville's rich Civil War history. They do an outstanding job helping us bring these events to life."
