Fort Tours in honor of Armed Forces Day
In recognition of Armed Forces Day, combine a soldier-led guided tour of Fort Ward with a performance of Civil War brass band music! A 90-minute tour of Fort Ward led by a Union interpreter will give participants a glimpse into the history, construction and soldier life of the Defenses of Washington. In the afternoon, enjoy a concert of Civil War-era music on the Museum lawn performed by the 8th “Green Machine” Division Band, a historical musical ensemble composed of George Mason University students. The 8th GM Division Band performs Civil War compositions in period uniform at a variety of historical events and Civil War sites. Program is weather dependent.
