Crisis in Carolina

Event Description

In 1761, the western part of North Carolina was in crisis. Warfare between British colonists and the Cherokee had raged for two years. By the summer and fall, armies massed for a final invasion of the Cherokee's homeland.

This living history event will shed light on the experiences of the soldiers, Cherokee, and settlers caught up in the Anglo-Cherokee War.  On-going displays of life in the fort and on the march will include period cooking, trades and crafts, as well as scheduled weapons firing demonstrations.

*Reenactor participation is by invitation only.
