Veterans Program At The Fort Nov. 10

Fort Scott National Historic Site Welcomes Veterans for Holiday Weekend

Fort Scott, Ks –Fort Scott National Historic Site (NHS) salutes all veterans with flags surrounding the Parade Ground, The Meanings of Freedom program Saturday at 11:00 am, and a 1840s color guard in the Veterans Parade.

Although Fort Scott never saw war directly, soldiers and officers who passed through this site, fought in two wars and other military actions. As you walk through Fort Scott NHS, we encourage you to reflect on the trials and sacrifices of our veterans.

Every veteran has a unique and personal story. This Veterans Day weekend, we thank the veterans of Fort Scott and beyond for their service and our freedom.
