2018 Civil War Days in the Battle Born State

Rate This Event

 

Don’t miss the 13th Annual Civil War Days in the Battle Born State on October 19-21, 2018 at Spring Mountain Ranch Park in Blue Diamond, Nevada. The history of Spring Mountain Ranch is a microcosm of Nevada’s history as a whole. Just as Nevada was “Battle Born” in the Civil War, Spring Mountain Ranch exists because our founder was brought through the Las Vegas valley on his way to serve in the Union Army. The Spring Mountain Ranch State Park honors our history with the Silver State Civil War Reenactment.
