Visit Fort Saint Philippe Post des Miamis and help celebrate Nouvelle Annee, the new year. See French soldiers, habitants (settlers), voyageurs, and their Miami Native Allies endure the chilly winter months. Native councils, arrests, desertion, and pay call were all part of daily life at Post Miami. See skits reenacting actual historical events from the history of Fort Wayne. Sponsored by Historic Fort Wayne and Les Garrison du Pays den Haut.
