You are invited to come meet Civil War Union and Confederate soldiers, their families, and even Abraham Lincoln. The public can come and see the soldiers demonstrate military maneuvers and take part in skirmishes and battles, and hear the roar of cannon. Visitors also can learn about life in the Union, Confederate and civilian camps, including information on the food that was prepared and eaten and the diseases that killed as many soldiers as the bullets and artillery.
The public also can talk with the reenactors who will discuss their weaponry, uniforms, and military regimen, express the fears and hopes period soldiers, talk about the long marches and taxing encampments in all forms of weather, and respond to questions about civilian as well as military life.
