Additional Information:

Long before today’s mass-produced plastic and metal containers, soldiers in the antebellum period tanned, dried, and sewed leather into hardy containers for food and ammunition. This year, you can catch demonstrations on leather crafting at Fort McKavett while members of the Co. H, 8th U.S. Infantry, work on their accoutrement kits in preparation for coming reenactments.
