The American Soldiers of the West reenactor group will be at the Museum, portraying two U.S. Army units that fought in the Spanish-American War in 1989: The 1st U.S. Volunteer Cavalry (the “Rough Riders”) and the 24th Infantry Regiment (one of the “Buffalo Soldier” regiments). This living history event will have a display of late 1800s guns, and set up camp on the Museum’s grounds for the weekend. The reenactors wear period uniforms, which are taken directly from the pages of history— as well as bringing accurate saddlebags, gear, and tack. Visit with them to learn about the Spanish-American War, and to learn more about the history of these two units.
