Jackson County Parks & Recreation's Fort Osage National Historic Landmark will host the re-creation of an 1810 military court martial from 11 a.m. to noon June 16, 107 Osage St., Sibley.
Guests will meet a member of the 1st U.S. Infantry, who has been charged with an offense, and have a front row seat to experience the trial to determine the man’s guilt or innocence. Some guests may be chosen to serve on a board of inquiry to decide the type of military discipline if the soldier is found guilty. At the inquiry’s completion, the board and other visitors will learn about the many types of physical or mental discipline that the U.S. military administered to enlisted men and officers at the Fort at that time.
The exhibition is included with the $8 adult admission fee; $4 for youth and seniors. Visit MakeYourDayHere.com/FortOsage for more information.
