Are you handy with a hammer and nail? Do you have an interest in antique hand tools? Or are you interested in how the soldiers that built Fort McKavett completed their task? 

Join us on Saturday June, 7, 2014 and try your hand at using a froe to rive wood, hammering square cut nails, or pitch in and help our living historians as they construct furnishings for our barracks.
