“Three Flags, One Fort” explores the politics, similarities, and differences between Mexican, American, and independent rule that controlled Sutter’s Fort before statehood in 1850. Cannon and musket demonstrations show the potential danger of change. Speeches, debates and arguments add passion to the issues, and indicate who had the upper hand at critical moments in California’s history. Visitors will have the chance to listen in and participate in a mock public debate. Both young and old will be able to examine period weaponry, see firing demonstrations, and have their picture taken with 19th century arms. Youngsters will have the chance to create and color period flags that flew over Sutter’s Fort. For more information please call phone (916) 445-4422 or visit www.suttersfort.org.
