Preview of Fort Atkinson Living History on WOWT 6 Outdoors

Fort Atkinson State Historical Park and its fall living history weekend will be featured on my WOWT 6 News Weekly Outdoor Report. I’m totally pumped up for it and, of course, to promote it! Check out the third soldier from the left.

Jenny Nguyen’s NEBRASKAland Magazine camera captured me pulling guard duty at the fort. Well, sort of.
