While enjoying your spring break, plan to make a stop at Fort McKavett, but best come prepared for class!

Visitors will see how both soldiers and school children alike were taught how to write using ink well pens and slate boards with chalk. Learn how to form letters using the same style of writing used in the 19th century.
