Make your way to Historic Fort Reno for an exciting look into the past.  The event kicks off with a dinner at 6pm, where you can meet other visitors to the fort and discuss plans for the evening.  Join re-enactors on a walk-through tour of the Fort Reno Cemetery during Fort Reno Tombstone Tales to hear vivid stories and re-tellings of various past residents and history camps.  Skilled re-enactors will portray individuals that were interred at the fort between 1874 and 1947.  Each re-enactor will be dressed in period clothing as they portray cavalrymen, scouts, settlers, American Indians and even German prisoners of war from the WWII era.  Visitors will be divided into groups and lead through the Fort Reno Cemetery to each character by a tour guide.  Fort Reno Tombstone Tales is both fun and educational, and is open to the public.
