A bright moon shown as visitors strolled through history at Fort Atkinson State Historical Park by candle light Saturday evening. The first stop along the way was a vigil for the deceased Lieutenant Taylor. As the visitors moved along the guided tour they learned about the workings of the military post. They also watched and listened as officers, soldiers and civilians went about their various chores and responsibilities and gossiped about the deceased lieutenant.
The Candle Light Tour is the highlight and the end of the 2014 season. The Living History days are held the first weekend of the month from May through October.
