The strategic importance of this location was vividly illustrated during the American Revolutionary War and Fort James Jackson played a crucial role during the War of 1812 and the American Civil War. Throughout the weekend visitors will participate in a variety of hands on activities appropriate for all ages to learn about the daily life of the soldiers stationed at Fort Jackson. Such activities include marching, battle reenactments, heavy artillery drill, and musket and cannon demonstrations. Visitor will learn about the many individuals and units of the of the Revolutionary War , War of 1812, and Civil War that are part of the story of a Century of Sentries at Old Fort Jackson.
