Civil War re-enactors in and around Washington state.

Doing the 160th Fort Steilacoom Celebration

Posted by greenlakenick on May 10, 2009

This weekend the 4th U.S. put on an event celebrating the 160th anniversary of Fort Steilacoom. Fun times were had by all. The crowds were solid, the re-enactments fun and frequent. Props to Gene and Shelly Knight for putting the whole thing together. John Strand (as usual) also went the extra mile.

What hasn’t worked out so well has been my effort to obtain pics for this entry. So for now, please check out the write-ups we received in the News Tribune and The Olympian. We also got some TV time on KING-5 News.

Actually this pic was taken last year, but I'm not having much luck getting new ones.

  1. To the Members of the 4th,

    Wish I was there in the ranks with you all! I sure do miss reenacting and being part of the 4th! The Navy has me pulled away temporarily, but I can’t wait to get back to Washington! The website looks fantastic who ever set this up! When I get back from my deployment in July I am definitely looking forward to the future drills and reenactments! I also hope that any photos that I take at future reenactments make it on this site. Take care and I will see you all when I return!

    Very Respectfully,
    Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class,
    Bryan Ilyankoff
    Media Department, USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74)
