The Old Fort will play host to a mercenary company, representing the years 1580 – 1610. Re-enactors portraying soldiers from England, Spain, France, Germany, and Poland will converge on the Fort to join the roll of the mercenary company of the Banner of St. Michal. As they train to become a unified fighting force, recruits will showcase the life and times of the late 16th and early 17th centuries. See what soldiers and civilians in the Age of Discovery wore and ate, as well as how they trained in their trade and interacted with one another.
