*********************************** 

Come to the 40th Annual Civil War Weekend at

Museum Village!

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!

September 5, 10am-5pm (Rain or Shine!)

September 6, 10am-4pm (Rain or Shine!)

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

A Happy and Safe Labor Day to Everyone!
