Civil War re-enactors from the Southwest region of the American Civil War Society will bring the Civil War to life with two battles each day at the Silver Bowl and Artillery Hill. Generals will narrate each of the battles.
During the event, you can chat with company commanders, watch a Civil War fashion show, enjoy music from
the era, and enjoy a ladies’ tea.
