Weeks ago we started a 3-part Pasty Cameo series on Fort Wilkins: its beginnings, military service, and present-day role as a State Park (yet to be completed, as of this morning). A few months back, Art Brabbs caught up with President Lincoln and the First Lady, along with several of the re-enactors who add such realism to each visitor's experience at Fort Wilkins. Edie and I were able to attend one of those reenactments in August.

From the Archives

This was the inspiration that prompted me to set out on a multiple week exploration of the Fort's history. Little did I know that unexpected travel and a round of Strep Throat would set-back completion of this journey. One way or another, we intend to close that loop with the final Pasty Cameo this week. Maybe by election day...

I would encourage all who have an interest in Fort Wilkins and its historical preservation, to consider joining the Fort Wilkins Natural History Association, which we host here at Pasty.NET.

Have a good week :o)

Are we correct to assume you still sound like Darth Vader this morning?

No, RD, it's more like Buckwheat from Little Rascals :o)

That would sound better than Froggy
