Spend the day celebrating our nation’s independence just like during the 1800s! Hear the roar of cannon salutes, watch military dress parades, listen to fife and drum music, participate in family-friendly activities, and so much more! As part of exploring the history of freedom in America, visitors can learn about slavery in Minnesota and the part Fort Snelling played in the great debate over freedom during the 1800s.
Guests can also watch a "mock battle" on the Parade Ground celebrating Colonel Snelling's victory at the Battle of Oak Woods during the War of 1812. Mock-battles were common public activities during Independence Day celebrations in the 1800s. This is sure to be the highlight of your Independence Day celebrations! Click here to learn more.
