Full Moon Fort in Oct, 18th
Fort Phil Kearny hosts “Full Moon Fort” with Lantern Tours
Guided Lantern Tours at Fort Phil Kearny will illuminate the darker side of the Fort and the contested “Bloody Bozeman” as part of a special event on the evening of October 18, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Visitors can expect to hear fun facts and “grisly” details related to the daily lives of Natives and Soldiers near the “hated Fort on Buffalo Creek.”
“We don’t have to make anything up to create good narratives. Fort Phil Kearny was an incredibly dramatic place to be in 1866 and 1867,” says Site Superintendent, Misty Stoll. The tours will take place on the night of the October full moon. Visitors are encouraged to dress warmly for the 30 minute tours. The Fort Phil Kearny Interpretive Center and Gift Shop will be open during the duration of the event.
Site fees apply for visitors over the age of 17; Wyoming Residents pay $2, Non-Residents, $4. In the cases of dangerously cold or wet conditions, the event will be canceled. For announcements and more information visit Fort Phil Kearny State Historic Site on Facebook and at FortPhilKearny.com.
Fort Phil Kearny State History Site is open Wednesday through Sunday 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and is located at 528 Wagon Box Rd in Banner, Wyoming off Exit 44 from Interstate 90. For more information call (307) 684-7629 or email the Superintendent at firstname.lastname@example.org.
