Fort Fisher Has Summer Activities for the Kids-- Part 3: Toy Soldiers and Water Balloons

AUGUST 5--  "TOY SOLDIER WORKSHOP"  Soldiers in most wars have specially designed uniforms.  During the Civil War both sides had the famous :Blue and Gray" uniforms, but also colors on the piping to indicate which branch of service they were in.

Learn about soldier uniforms, the colors they used and their equipment.

The best part is you get to paint your very own toy soldier and, even better, take it home.

AUGUST 12--  "THE ARTILLERY GUNNER"

Learn how Fort Fisher's artillerists had to use math and science to target Union ships out to sea.  then try your own hand at hitting the blockading ships with water balloons!

Take home your own quadrant to practice measuring launch angles for your own water balloon battles.
