Time Travelers- A Roar of Muskets, The Civil War

November 5th, 11 AM, 1 PM, & 3PM

View the smoke and fire of a rifled musket demonstration or dress in uniform, load, and fire one yourself for your own experience in history.

The ordered line of soldiers stands ready as their officer explains the drill and function of a black powder musket. At the command they handle cartridges from their boxes and ram the rounds down the barrel with the clink of ramrods. Their weapons raised in unison, a flash of flames, the thunder of the blast, and the air grows rich with white smoke. You too can experience this hands on history at Audubon State Historic Site. Experience the feel of the woolen coats buttoned tight, the weight of the musket as it kicks back to your shoulder, or the roar of the muzzle blast as you travel back over 150 years in a moment.

Ages 16 and up only. All standard site fees apply.
