Symbols of Sacrifice

Fort Scott National Historic Site - May 21 - May 24

Fort Scott National Historic Site is pleased to present Symbols of Sacrifice honoring the sacrifice of Americans throughout our nation’s history. The main focus of the event will be a Field of Honor on the historic Fort parade grounds, where approximately 7,000 US flags will fly for service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep this county free. The purpose is to remember the fallen, their sacrifice, and their humanity, not to glorify war.

There will be guided tours daily at 11 am and 1 pm. All weekend at 2:30 pm, we will have special programs.

  • Saturday will discuss the Mexican American War
  • Sunday, the Civil War -A Most Diverse Army
  • Monday, a special Memorial Day program followed by a Moment of Silence at 3 pm.
