Where: 
Fort Robinson

Join us from August 15-17 as we welcome Fort Riley's Commanding General Mounted Color Guard back to Fort Robinson!

The group will perform demonstrations involving Cavalry skills, shooting skills, and equipment used by the U.S. Army from the 1860s-1880s at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm each day. They will also be available around the grounds and at the Post Museum to answer questions from the public about Army life, what it takes to be a member of the Mounted Color Guard, and their performances.

All activities are free and open to the public, although a park permit will be required for admittance.
