The most authentic Living History event in the state, Alabama Frontier Days is a reenactment of Alabama's 18-19th century from French Colonial times to the early American period. Includes Native American reenactors, period traders, merchants and entertainers. Alabama Frontier Days is a wonderful opportunity to see the unique culture of the South as it was transformed from Creek Indian lands to pioneer settler forts and homesteads during the period of 1700 to 1820. French Fort Toulouse will be occupied by a full force of authentically costumer French Colonial Marines and a War of 1812 camp will be set up next to Fort Jackson. We have also scheduled various demonstrations and period entertainments. A partial list of the demonstrations includes:
Dugout Canoe Construction
Creek Indian Hunting Camp
Spinning, Weaving & Dying
Use of a Flintlock Musket
Ft. Toulouse Colonial Marines
War of 1812 Military Encampment
Puppet & Marionette Shows
One of Favorite Events, we missed last year due to medical problems, but all is well now and we plan on attending in 2011!
I made a great video of Fort Toulouse/Jackson in 2009, here it ishttp://youtu.be/EClOneaPvis (http://youtu.be/EClOneaPvis).
