Living History Day – Veterans Day
Saturday, November 13

Included in Admission
The Presidio Museum comes alive allowing visitors get a feel for what it would have been like to be in the Presidio at its height of occupation in the late 18th century. This month, in addition to our traditional demonstrations, Living History will focus on Veterans Day, honoring a variety of soldiers that have served Arizona from New Spain to statehood (1775-1912) with demonstrations and presentations of military gear and weaponry.
In addition to themed activities, other opportunities for visitors include:
***interactive demonstrations of children’s games and weaving
***soldiers practicing their drills and the hourly firing of a four-pound bronze cannon
***watching and learning how the soldiers fire their muskets
***pumping the bellows of the blacksmith’s forge
