FORT CALHOUN, Neb. (AP) _ An upcoming living-history event at Fort Atkinson State Historical Park will feature a reenactment of life at a military post in the 1820s.

The park in eastern Nebraska is set to host the event on Oct. 6 and 7, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The reenactments will include portrayals of fur traders, coopers, blacksmiths, Indian agents and others.
