    Sergeant Bryan
    1 more image

    Every day is a depiction of a day in 1864, at the heart of the fort's history. Every character here is based on historical documentation and personl journals. The reenactors know the background of each soldier or POW and brings that person back to life for you.

    You will meet Julia Gunning, a laundress who can teach you how to use a scrub board for your laundry!

    Edmund Bryan, the Ordnance Sergeant was the only regular army soldier posted here in 1864 and was in charge of all ammunition. Don't miss the artillery demonstrations conducted by Sergeant Bryan and learn the importance of drilling. His demonstrations are very interesting and informative. During the drill, one will learn the proper handling, loading and firing of a civil war era rifle.

    The POWs in the barracks will change your view of the Civil War...just get them talking...

    Fort Delaware

    You can pack your lunch in, just pack your trash out. You have to take the trash with you to keep the prices down for the fort! There are picnic tables all over the island. You can buy cold drinks here, and bottled water was only $1.25. You can easily see this is a lovely spot to picnic!
