Fort McKavett State Historic Site will come to life on May 3rd & 4th, 2019 as Living Historians from around the state gather to portray life as it would have been at the fort in the 1800’s. Throughout the day, activities will include military drills, Native Indian demonstrations, Buffalo Soldiers, Buffalo Hunters, Chuck Wagon demonstrations, the Texas Camel Corps, the Texas Longhorn herd, a one-room schoolhouse lesson, frontier woodworking, weavers, seamstresses and much more. There will be infantry and artillery firing demonstrations periodically throughout the day! On Saturday, the Ice House Brass Band will perform during a barbecue lunch offered to the public by the Friends of Fort McKavett, donations are graciously accepted. At 2:00 pm on Saturday, the Sahawe Indian Dancers, members of Boy Scout Troop and Venture 181 from Uvalde, will present a colorful and fast moving variety of Native American dances. This is one of the largest events of its kind and takes place at a beautifully pristine historic frontier fort that was once called “the prettiest post in Texas.”
