Kearny regulars holding training April 14

SHERIDAN — The public is invited to Fort Phil Kearny on April 14 to learn about and train and play with Kearny’s Frontier Regulars, a living history unit that has been around for 11 years.

Unit members will introduce the public to their group’s activities, purposes and goals by inviting attendees to participate in their training.

The Regulars have learned about and trained on the 1860′s U.S. Army (infantry, cavalry and artillery), civilians and Northern Plains Indians by focusing on the weapons, clothing and equipment of that time.
The public can learn about and possibly fire period weapons to include the 1861 Springfield, Enfield musket, Spencer Carbine and Henry rifle and — if time allows — take part as a crewman in firing the 12-pound Howitzer.
The event will take place from 1-3 p.m. at Fort Phil Kearny, 528 Wagon Box Road, Banner.
Take exit 44 off Interstate 90, go three miles on Highway 193 and turn left on Kearny Lane.
Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
For additional information call 307-684-7136 or 307-472-7712, or email rcwilson@vcn.com or bruce_berst@natronaschools.org.
