Exploring life with Johnston's Army
Travel back in time to 1858 - 1861 and enter the world of a soldier with Johnston's Army at Camp Floyd in the Utah Territory. As a new enlisted private, you will don your uniform, shoulder your musket, and march off to a new adventure! Arriving at camp, your commanding officer will instruct you and fellow recruits on the logistics and activities that await you. New recruits are processed, mustered into the army and issued uniforms. Leaving modem possessions behind, the call of bugles and your officers' commands will replace the daily routine of 21st century life. Examples of Camp Activities Soldiers Camp - Join the Army. Meet costumed interpreters and learn about a soldier's equipment and camp life. Fire a rifle musket; drill like soldiers with a replica rifle. Play camp games like graces, hoops, and more. Watch costumed interpreters fire a cannon and participate in a cannon firing role-play. Set up a camp similar to Camp Floyd - Erect tents and live, work and play 19th century games. Craft Activities - Make items such as a musket rifle cartridge, and more. Experience the History of Camp Floyd - Enjoy the fascinating exhibits and displays on the life of a soldier at the Camp Floyd Museum. Tour the Stagecoach Inn constructed next to the camp for passengers traveling by stagecoach.
