Cannon fire, rifle demonstrations and uniformed and hoop-skirted re-enactors bring the Civil War to life at Memorial Day at Fort D, May 29 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Constructed during the beginning of the Civil War in the summer of 1861, Fort D is the only remaining fort, out of four Civil War forts, that once protected the city of Cape Girardeau from Confederate attack. The earthwork walls of the fort remain intact and signage throughout the fort's grounds recount the history of Fort D. Step back in time at historic Fort D and experience anew the echoes of a now distant war that pitted brother against brother.
