The 100th Anniversary of the Coast Artillery Corps

Using Living History Interpretation
Fort Monroe, Virginia

6 & 7 October 2007



PURPOSE AND METHODOLOGY

To provide an overview of the history of the United States Army Coast Artillery Corps and the Harbor Defenses of the Chesapeake Bay from 1907 through 1950. This will be accomplished through hands-on interpretation of the weapons, fire control equipment, communications, and day-to-day life of the soldiers who manned the defensive batteries. The public will have the opportunity to observe ships through optical fire control equipment, talk on a functioning telephone network, and examine many pieces of museum-quality equipment during formal and informal tours and presentations.



PRESENTATION STATIONS

1. Casemate Museum - interactive living history plotting room exhibit

2. Command observation station (tower on old fort)

3. Battery Irwin and Battery Parrott (manning batteries, ordnance, soldier bivouac)
