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

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.
