The event will include artifact displays, site tours, hands-on archaeology and historical lectures.

The Pocahontas County Veterans Honor Corps will raise the flag and fire a rifle salute at 11 a.m. to honor Revolutionary War veterans who are interred in Warwick Cemetery.

Fort Warwick is located on the Bob Sheets property just off Rt. 92 in Green Bank.
