Long Description:
Visiting Fort George was a very pleasant experience for the whole family during the month of July.

The re-enactors had many demonstrations constantly going on throughout the day which keeps the children interested. Artillery, fife and drum, and even a mini-militia where children can enlist in King George's army for 7 or 21-year enlistments... or until snack time.
