Assault on Fort Blakeley - Fort Blakeley, Alabama - April 5-7, 2019 This is a unique opportunity for participants to live in and improve original fortifications, while also viewing much which has been covered with vegetation for years. The works have been improved before, we aren't disturbing anything. This will be a very active event, giving everyone a rare taste of siege warfare in 1865. Leftover registration fees are always donated to the park's interpretive panel project. Mess No. 1 will fall in with the 24th Missouri for this event. Web Site I Guidelines I Register
