At 8:30 p.m. every Wednesday evening throughout the summer, the rattle of marching troops and the thunder and light of cannons and fireworks will thrill local residents and visitors alike. Featuring more than 60 participants, the ceremony is actually a series of events depicting elements of Fort Henry's historic past. Three units of the Fort Henry Guard - the drill squad or infantry, the drum corps, and the artillery - each put on a parade and presentation. As well, the three groups together present a battle sequence. This is followed by the traditional lights-out ceremony. The large guns on the east battery are fired, after which the flag is lowered and an evening hymn sung. The evening wraps up with an impressive display of fireworks over Fort Henry hill.
