Bay seniors, despite the 236 year presence of the Presidio know that SF comes up short in serious military history.( And I’m not counting the recent Occupy movements.) Remedy that omission with a visit to Fort Point under the Golden Gate Bridge this Saturday August 18 from 10-5. Sadly there can be no battle re-enactment in SF since there were no battles here. But the participants will be dressed in uniforms of the era. There will be infantry and artillery drills and talks on daily life in the mid 19th century. Free.
