What? Historical Reenactment. The Arizona Historical Society again brings history to life. This time it’s at Fort Lowell on the east side of Tucson. Next Saturday you will be able to meet some of the women who lived and worked here in the 19th century. For instance, between 11 AM and 1 PM, you can meet the wives of an Army band member, a hospital steward, a 1st Lieutenant, and a Fort Commander. I will be there to conduct a couple of on-camera interviews to add to our 50+ original videos on SouthernArizonaGuide.com.
And of course you can visit the fine exhibits in the two restored Officers Quarters. One building features the U.S. Army soldiers who were stationed here to fight the hostiles. The other building houses the “hostiles” exhibits.
Where? Fort Lowell Park, 2900 N. Craycroft Rd., Tucson, AZ 85712
When? November 3rd; 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Cost? Free. Bring a chair or blanket to sit on.
