Fort McKavett : Accoutrements Workshop


February 11 at 10:00am to at 4:00pm

For members of our reenacting group, Co. H, 8th US Infantry, this is an opportunity to work on your various accoutrement kits in preparation for upcoming events. Expert Site Staff will be available to guide you through difficult portions or just help you get started. For visitors, come see how the leather accoutrements of the Antebellum Era were made and cared for. In the time before plastic and metal containers, leather was used to carry many items the soldiers needed including ammunition and food. Join us as we demonstrate how these items were created. For information about this workshop, please contact us either through the Facebook page or by email at Kevin.Malcolm@thc.texas.gov.
