And, I've camped in a dog tent on the site of the cemetery before it was interpreted. Please, email me, at, and we can discuss the fort. For those who might not know, NPS policy for their living history programs, is not to use original weapons. Volunteers may do so, as part of the VIP (Volunteers in Parks) programs. The NPS, when replicas are not available on the open market, contract to have firearms made; in some cases, virtually by hand. Fort Larned, as far back as the 1970's, have had such arms, including the M1866.
