Come see men and women in period clothing and live firing of Civil War firearms and artillery. Activities include children’s programs, dances, cook-outs, and “Sutler Row,” where vendors display and sell Civil War firearms, accoutrements, and clothing. It is one of the largest Civil War events of its kind in the country.
