Live a Day in the Life of a Civil War Soldier
The Civil War Reenactment isn’t all cannons and gunpowder. The event, and others like it also give a glimpse into daily life for civilians and soldiers during the war. Spectators are encouraged to visit the camps — Union, Confederate and civilian — for demonstrations of period dress, food and medicine, to meet the cavalry and their horses and to strike up conversations with in-character reenactors. Whether a Yankee or a Rebel, reenactors spend countless hours researching everything from military maneuvers and rifled muskets to hoop skirts and 19th-century cooking. The basic mission of the American Civil War reenactor is to honor the people who fought and suffered on both sides.
