Civil War Days: Weekend Pass

History comes to life at this reenactment, featuring battles, period demonstrations, kids' activities and Civil War-era shopping.

THIS EVENT IS CANCELED.

Due to safety concerns, we are canceling the Civil War Days event scheduled for July 13 and 14, 2019. 
 



Hear the crack of gunfire and the boom of cannons at our 28th annual Civil War Days event. Visitors of all ages are invited to explore the military and civilian camps to learn about life in the 1860s.

Meet historical figures including Abraham Lincoln, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, General Grant and more. Kids will enjoy special period crafts and games, and complete a scavenger hunt around the site. Visitors can also experience a recreation of the 1863 Agricultural Fair, which features public amusements and horticultural and domestic arts exhibitions.

The event culminates each day with a narrated battle reenactment. A large Civil War era shopping area, period music, and food vendors round out the event. 

Who:  

All ages.
