Fort McKavett: Tailor's Shop ca. 1872

Repeats every day until Sat Jul 21 2018.
July 20, 2018 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

In preparation for “Connecting the Forts: Greely’s Mission” we will be hosting another workshop that focuses on preparing members of Company I, 10th US Infantry for this immersion event slated for November 2018. This event will focus on making the pleated 1872 blouse and the 1872 kepi. The 1872 blouse is a unique garment that will require experienced site staff to assist participants in its creation. Having made a few of these jackets, we feel confident that we can outfit all those who are interested in joining us for this rather intensive workshop. Please RSVP at email listed below.
