Massiac Marines came together last weekend to host its annual School of the Soldier. The two-day event, May 14-15, demonstrated life in the 18th century. While the men practiced military drills, the women held demonstrations of sewing, spinning yarn and basket making. Children played games and made taper candles. A tavern and a trekking station were also on display. The Marines meet the second Saturday of most months, September through May, to hold a Living History day at Fort Massac State Park. In addition, the spinning guild meets monthly at the fort’s visitors center on the first Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
