The Friends Of Fort Defiance‘s Civil War Ball and Dinner will be held on November 13th at the Smith-Trahern Mansion on McClure Street.  This year Friends of the Fort will be conducting a Memorial Service for the Civil War Casualties who are buried in Riverview Cemetery.  The Memorial Service includes a presentation by a color guard and a short devotional talk by a Civil War reverend.
