Live History: Watch Mackinaw City’s reenactment of Fort Michilimackinac

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Our tour of Mackinaw City continues and this time we got a live history lesson. Todd spoke to a couple of the actors who annually reenact the history of Fort Michilimackinac.

Fun fact: Did you know it was a game of baggataway (now called lacrosse) that was used as a ruse by the Native Americans to storm the fort and take it over? We learned that and much more during the reenactment.

If you're planning a trip up north, make sure to slot some time to stay in Mackinaw City to enjoy many of the activities, events, and great food the city has to offer.
