Though you can’t rewrite history, you can have fun recreating it. This past weekend, re-enactors recreated Chief Cornstalk’s fateful visit to Fort Randolph in the fall of 1777, and the subsequent siege placed upon the fort in 1778 in which a war party of more than 200 Shawnee warriors formed a line stretching from the Ohio to the Kanawha rivers. The Siege at Fort Randolph is Mason County’s outdoor historical drama and brings re-enactors and visitors from neighboring states and beyond. Pictured are scenes from this weekend’s re-enactment at Krodel Park, which kicks off the summer season for the fort now open for educational tours about life in another time. The re-enactment revolves around a military siege intended to begin the return of land back to the Shawnee Nation and the circumstances leading to it.
