FORT CALHOUN, Neb. (AP) - Life in the 1820s on a military post will be portrayed next month at Fort Atkinson State Historical Park.

The park’s Living History Weekend on Aug. 6-7 will feature reenactors portraying the fort’s military history and demonstrating various period trades and crafts. That includes blacksmithing and weaving.

Living history interpreters also will read the Monroe Doctrine aloud each day. Visitors may also visit a Lewis and Clark encampment near the visitor center.

Fort Atkinson sits on the east side of Fort Calhoun, which is situated 15 miles north of Omaha. A park entry permit is required for all vehicles and can be purchased at the park.
