According to Fort Verde Manager Sheila Stubler, historian Marshall Trimble's appearance at the History of the Soldier event is the fulfillment of a promise made several years back.

"I had asked him to come for an event in 2008. He sent me an email saying he had a scheduling conflict but would be happy to come sometime in the future. I never deleted the email.

"So when I thought he would make a good speaker for this year's History of the Soldier, I sent him a request with the old email attached. He graciously agreed to waive his speaking fee and come here to help out," says Stubler.

A former Marine, Trimble will make a special presentation on Saturday, April 14, at 11 a.m., on frontier military life, as the men who served at Fort Verde would have experienced it.

Along with being the state's official historian, Trimble teaches Arizona history at Scottsdale Community College and is the author of more than 20 books on the state's storied past.

He is also a humorist, singer and storyteller and a recent inductee into the Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame.

Trimble's presentation will be followed by that of Terrie Frankel, a Sedona resident who once toured with her twin sister in a USO show during the Vietnam War.

Members of the Arizona National Guard will also be on had to share their stories of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.

History of the Soldiers is an annual event in which re-enactors, may of them military veterans, don historical uniforms and bring along vintage equipment from the Revolutionary war to modern day.

Most of them camp out at the fort, offering "living history" interpretive presentations through out the two-day event.

History of the Soldier will take place at Fort Verde State Historical Park on Saturday April 14 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday April 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Admission is $5 per person ages 14 and up, $2 for youth 7-13 and children under 6 get in free.
