On March 2, 2017, Fort Towson Historic Site hosted a living history event. The fort grounds were dotted with camps to demonstrate various aspects of military and civilian life during the early period of the fort. The camps depicted life from the early 1820s through the 1860s.
There were two camps associated with military life, the Cannon’s and the Dragoon or military soldier.
