Our event season begins with the Spirit of Vincennes, one of our largest events featuring encampments, battle, artillery, and horse demonstrations, and a festival area with food, entertainment, and activities for the whole family. On the historic site of Fort Sackville, now the George Rogers Clark National Historic Park.
The George Rogers Clark National Historical Park and the Spirit of Vincennes, Inc. join with the N.W.T.A. for this regional event. The 8th Regiment of Foot proudly serves as host unit.

Again, change in the contour of the NPS grounds caused by the continuing levee project necessitate that we adapt our camps. Noting a current trend in styles of camp, I welcome input at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will try to incorporate people’s wishes within the physical and NPS limitations on use of the grounds.
Please register by May 17, if possible, to aid in caterer arrangements and camp planning.
