On Saturday, November 10th, 2012, from 10am to 4pm, and Sunday, November 11th from 10am to 3pm, learn North Carolinians’ involvement in foreign wars throughout our nation’s history. From Fort Dobb’s website: North Carolina has survived numerous invading military forces and sent tens of thousands of her sons and daughters off to war over the centuries. Visit with Cherokee warriors, Johnny Reb and Billy Yank, WWII G.I.’s and grunts from Vietnam, among others, and learn how their uniforms, equipment and experience have changed over the past three hundred years. Cannon and small arms demonstrations will be featured.
