Letters from the Reservation

This featured event, sponsored through a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, is titled Letters from the Reservation and is a live event at the Memorial that happens three times a year.  Through this program, the history of the fort and reservation unfolds by way of story telling using archival military correspondence and oral stories.  Typically letters and oral stories are read by those in attendance.  However, this year we are pleased to sponsor the Letters from the Reservation completely online.  We invite you to listen and follow along as the letters are read by volunteers.  Each letter includes photographs, newspaper clippings, and other artifacts to help tell the story.  We encourage you to interact with the objects on every page.
