2018 Doniphan Civil War Days

Rate This Event

 

April 20-21, 2018
 
The Doniphan Neighborhood Assistance Program is sponsoring it’s 2018 Doniphan Civil War Day on April 21st and 22nd.  This is a two day “Living History” event that attempts to give visitors the sense of what it would have been like to have lived during the 1860’s in Ripley County, Missouri.  On Friday, April 21st, the 2018 Doniphan Civil War Days will be devoted primarily to school age children with Saturday’s program geared for the general public.
 
We are trying to step it up a notch this year by offering a $100 bounty for the first 3 cannons to register and set up as well as a $10 bounty for the first 70 Cavalry or Infantry to show up and register.  Basic Amenities such as firewood, port-a-potties, straw and water will be provided.  This is a Friday-Saturday event, however reenactors are welcome to stay over until Sunday. Friday will be a living history day for schools that
attend with a Cemetery Ceremony and Battle on Saturday.

Throughout the day on Friday and Saturday will be vintage craft demonstrations through out the park. The Blacksmith Shop will be having demonstrations where spectators can watch craftsmen working as well as purchase items. There also will be craft booths and food booths opened both
days. Soldier and Civilian camps will be open both days for spectators to visit and ask questions of the reenactors. Reenactors are asked to maintain a period camp and conduct the normal activities of that time period.
