FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Colonial America on the Frontier event was held Saturday at Fort Wayne’s Historic Old Fort.

Dressed in traditional clothing of the times, actors presented infantry drills, shot cannons, fought in skirmishes, and read the Declaration of Independence during the event. Demonstrations were given in the camps, the Commander’s kitchen, and by a blacksmith and surveyor.

Guided tours of the Fort were also provided to guests.

The reenactment continues on Sunday with additional presentations.
