Hale Farm & Village, a museum of Western Reserve Historical Society, brings the Civil War to life for two days, with a preview of the encampment on Friday, August 12. Guests will meet soldiers and civilians, hear the sounds of battle, smell the gunpowder, shake hands with President Lincoln, and shop for a hoopskirt.
From 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, both days of the Hale Farm Civil War Reenactment, guests will relive the American Civil War experience. At 2:00 pm daily, the recreation of Civil War battles in the museum’s North Pasture is just one feature of the event.
