Civil War Weekend
Name: Civil War Weekend
Date: September 15, 2018 - September 16, 2018
The Civil War comes to life at the Village’s annual Civil War Weekend, Saturday and Sunday, September 15th and 16th, from 10am to 4:30pm. Visitors can tour Union and Confederate camps and meet authentically clad and equipped military and civilian reenactors who will discuss the everyday lives of Civil War soldiers and the roles civilians played in supporting them. The Village, which re-creates a rural community in the 1800s, serves as the perfect backdrop in presenting this event to the public. The battle reenactment begins at 2:00pm. Visitors will be unable to enter the Village grounds at 1:45pm. It is strongly encouraged that visitors arrive before 1:30pm. The Village buildings will be closed during the battle and will reopen afterwards. Civil War weekend is sponsored by Hotel Alcott.
