Concert at Ft. Atkinson

This past Sunday, October 2nd, 1st Nebraska performed for the Washington County Heritage Days at historic Ft. Atkinson in Ft. Calhoun. NE. It was a beautiful fall day with sunny skies and temperatures hovering around 70 degrees. The band set up in a tent cover while the audience sat in the sun, sorry. All along the path to the fort entrance Living History re-enactors demonstrated skills of the early 1800’s, the period in which the fort was active.

Ft. Atkinson was built to protect the Missouri River following Lewis and Clark’s Corps of Discovery’s navigation and exploration. The fort served as a trading post for trappers and Native Americans, and as an emissary of the federal government. Today, the rebuilt fort contains barracks, store house, commissary, ammunition storage, a schoolroom and offices ¬†all bordered by a stockade.
