Witness how soldiers at Fort Pitt prepared for cannon firings to defend the fort. The Fort Pitt Museum cannon crew will fire the museum's replica British six-pounder cannon throughout the day, weather permitting. Times for the cannon firings will be posted at the entrance to the Fort Pitt Museum.
Artisans including tinners, turners, and blacksmiths will demonstrate and discuss how their trades contributed to 18th century artillery. There will be different artisans on each day.
This living history program will take place in the grassy lawn beside the Fort Pitt Museum.
