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.

UPDATE: Pics received after all.

Private John Strand has set up an event on Facebook that does more justice to the outing than I can. If you’re interested, have a read.
