Fort Snelling Creates July 4 Blast From The Past

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — No A/C, no electricity and clothes made out of wool.

It was all part of the Independence Day celebration at Fort Snelling – gun and cannon fire punctuated the festivities.

“I think it’s a way to have a really good connection to the past,” said one re-enactor. “You can read about Fort Snelling and any era, and until you come and experience it, you understand it on a better level.”
