Celebrate the United States' birthday at Historic Fort Snelling and explore the history of freedom in 19th century America. Just like in the 1800s, hear cannon and muskets salutes, watch a military dress parade, listen to fife and drum music and attend a mock battle.

But not all Americans viewed Independence Day this way 200 years ago. Visit interactive learning stations around the fort and learn about the struggles for freedom and independence for several different groups of Americans—such as enslaved people, American Indians and women—while exploring the question "What does freedom mean today?"
