Historic downtown Cape, including Civil War sites such as the Common Pleas Courthouse, St. Vincent’s Seminary, and Port Cape Girardeau (perhaps Grant’s headquarters), plus antique stores and excellent restaurants, are about one mile away from Fort D.

First observed after the end of the Civil War, Memorial Day honors the memory of U. S. soldiers who have died in military service.
