Major William Footman Camp #1950, Sons of Confederate Veterans, presents their Second Annual Campout and Living History event the weekend of November 3, 4, and 5, 2006.   


The event will be held at Cape Coral Historical Museum grounds located at 544 Cultural Park Boulevard and is easily accesible from Interstate 75.  Tents will be set up during Friday the 3rd, with primary activities all day on Saturday November 4th.    Spectators will view flag ceremonies, rifle and cannon fire, drilling on the green, and talks by a number of well known historians on the "late unpleasantness."   Craftsmen, including a gunsmith, will be exhibiting their crafts, along with a Sutler or two.   Food will be available locally.   


If you are driving south on I-75, take exit #143 (Rt. 78, called Bayshore at that intersection.)   Bayshore becomes Pine Island Road as you travel west and intersects with Cultural Park Boulevard in central Cape Coral.  Go south on Cultural Park Boulevard---the Museum will be on your right; on the west side of the boulevard.  


For those coming up from the Naples area, take exit # 136 on I75 and go west on Colonial Boulevard through Ft. Myers, crossing the Veterans Memorial Bridge.  Continuing on Veterans Parkway in Cape Coral, exit right at the next street after the first stoplight (Country Club Blvd), which is Academy.    Go north on Academy which automatically becomes Cultural Park Boulevard.  The Museum is just north of the City Hall Complex.


We promise an exciting and enjoyable time following our inaugral event last year, and request your participation to make this an even larger reenactment.    For further information contact Chuck Hostetler (Camp Historian) at (239)  458-2604, or Anne Cull (Museum Curator) at (239)  772-7037.


The project is jointly sponsored by the City of Cape Coral Parks and Recreation Department and the Cape Coral Historical Society and Museum, along with the SCV.
