    Learn about army life for Union artillerymen stationed in the Defenses of Washington at Fort Ward Museum’s living history program, “Civil War Artillery with the 1st Connecticut Heavy Artillery.” The reenactors of the 1st Connecticut Heavy Artillery portray the duties and soldier life of a regiment that was stationed at Fort Ward during the Civil War. Featured activities include an artillery equipment display, camp life scenarios and cannon firing demonstrations featuring a 3-inch ordnance rifle and a 24-pound Coehorn mortar. Visitors can also view original artillery equipment, ammunition and personal gear worn by Union artillerymen in the Museum exhibit, “Artillerymen in the Defenses of Washington.” This living history program is free but also weather-dependent.
