The second day of the 1812 re-enactment of our local Fort Osage preparing for war with Great Britain. Unsure if the small garrison can successfully defend the fort, the soldiers form a civilian militia to augment their meager resources. Cannon practice, musket practice and infantry drills keep the soldier at the ready for action. This annual event is nationally recognized as one of the most authentic interpretations of the period. $8 Adult admission, $4 children, Under 5 free. 816-229-8980.
