    Experience growth and change from the ‘Good Ol’ Days’ at Fort Scott National Historic Site
     
    The Good’ Ol’ Days are back Saturday, June 1, 2019 at Fort Scott National Historic Site. With the completion of the transcontinental railroad 150 years ago, growth and change were once again on the doorstep of Fort Scott. Try your hand at using a telegraph or quill pens instead of texting, reminisce with reenactors about how life used to be, play traditional games, or learn about how the railroad changed the face of Fort Scott. A surgical reenactor will be discussing historic medicine and then at 2 pm we will be landing AirMedCare’s air ambulance and hosting Fort Scott’s ground ambulance to discuss how medicine has improved. Living history activities will be ongoing from 9 am - 4 pm. All activities are free and open to the public.
