Experience the 44th Annual Civil War Weekend at Museum Village on August 31 – September 1, 2019 at Museum Village in Monroe, New York. Civil War Weekend at Museum Village is one of the premier events of the year. The living historians that will gather here are men, women and children who wear authentic dress, adopt a Victorian view of society and war, and take great pride in their representation and portrayal of historic regiments and organizations they represent. These American Civil War reenactors, both military and civilian, are eager to interpret this very important chapter in our Nation’s past.

Civil War Reenactment at Museum Village

Here at Museum Village, you will see representations of Federal and Confederate infantry, artillery and cavalry units. Medical demonstrations and civilian life are also a part of the scenery that the visitor will observe.

Visitors can stroll through the camps, talk with the troops and civilians, meet with President Lincoln and Harriet Tubman and shop on Sutler’s Row, the civilian merchants who followed the Army.

Museum Village will have all of the buildings staffed and interpreted; President Lincoln will be here to give his Gettysburg Address; Harriet Tubman will be walking through the grounds; and, many other time period demonstrations will showcase a past life.
