About the event

This special tour of Fort McKavett showcases the life of the Soldiers, Officers, and Ladies of Fort McKavett as they prepare to celebrate Christmas on the American Frontier!

The year is 1876, the Yuletide approaches for the Garrison of Fort McKavett. What does the holiday season hold in store for them?

Will the Hospital Department supply holiday cheer?

Will Mrs. Drum be prepared to welcome her husband's Commander into their Quarters?

Why does the fort's Commanding Officer want to cancel Christmas?

How do Soldiers ring in the holidays in the Barracks?
