Since 1978, cavalry troops and infantry units have converged on the grounds of Fort Sisseton Historic State Park in northeastern South Dakota for the Fort Sisseton Historical Festival each June. Muzzleloaders, riflemen and crack-shots meet amidst a teepee encampment with dozens of lodges and traders, historic figures, an art and craft show, melodrama stage show, and music from the Civil War.
