9 AM - "Biking the Battlefield" - Join a ranger for a special battlefield bike tour for young visitors and their families. During the 2 1/2 mile road, the group will stop and explore some of the most important sites on the battlefield.
11 AM - 3:30 PM - "Interview an Infantryman" - Talk with a Civil War soldier and ask him about his experiences in camp and on the battlefield. The soldier will demonstrate musket firing every half hour from 11 AM to 3 PM.
8 AM - 5 PM - "Fortress Detail" - Stop by the park visitor center and pick up an activity book that will guide you on a tour of Fortress Rosecrans. Turn in your completed book and earn a complete set of our Civil War to Civil Rights trading cards. Make sure you stop by the infantryman and get his help with one of the activities.
