Experience a winter with the French of Fort Miamis.  Re-enactors from “Les Habitants et Marines du Post ed Miamis” will spend the weekend living in the Fort, which will be open for visitors on Saturday. Their goal is to recreate actual events which occurred in and around what is now Fort Wayne in the year 1757. They do so by examining letters written by the French commanders of what was then known as Fort Miamis and then attempt to recreate those events.  Mail call, military drills, scouting, cooking and sewing will be some of the events taking place during the event.
