Reenactment Camping at Fort De Chartres
Presented by Karyn Albers. This program will center on what life would have been like at the fort during Rendezvous! There was a major transfer of furs and goods to be traded for furs during Rendezvous. Variations included a mix of other types of trading, business transactions, business meetings and revelry. Fort De Chartres has one of the longest running summer and winter rendezvous in the country. This year, September 13-15, will mark the 50th Anniversary for Fort De Chartres Rendezvous and the 300th anniversary of Fort De Chartres.
