Fort Buford Military Collectors Show Sept. 9-10 Williston

The Fort Buford 6th Infantry will host its 6th annual Military Collectors Show Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 9 and 10 in the multi-purpose building at the Upper Missouri Valley Fairgrounds, Williston. The show is a fundraiser for the Fort Buford 6th Infantry which is a living history group portraying the Fort Buford soldiers in the 1870s.
