****************************************************

 Civil War Weekend at Museum Village is one of our premier events of the year. The living historians that will gather here are men, women and children who don authentic dress, adopt a Victorian view of society and war, and take great pride in their representation and portrayal of historic regiments and organizations. These individuals are eager to interpret this very important chapter in our Nation’s past.

Here at Museum Village, you will see representations of Federal and Confederate infantry, artillery and cavalry units. Medical demonstrations and civilian life are also a part of the scenery that the visitor will observe. During the weekend you will witness re-enactments of standard Civil War tactics and troop movements as the two armies meet in battle. Visitors can stroll through the camps, meet and talk with the troops and civilians, and shop at Sutler’s Row, the civilian merchants who followed the Army.

Museum Village will have all of the buildings staffed and interpreted; President Lincoln will be here to give his Gettysburg Address; Harriet Tubman will be walking through the grounds; and, many other time period demonstrations will showcase a past life. Plan on spending the entire day immersed in one of our histories most important time periods! This year's dates are Saturday, August 30th and Sunday, August 31st from 10 to 4.

Keep checking back as we add more information!

Adults: $15.00; Seniors: $12.00; Children 4 -12: $10.00
