2019 Van Raalte Farm Civil War Muster
The 11th Annual Van Raalte Farm Civil War Muster will be held on September 21-22, 2019 at the historic Van Raalte Farm in Holland, Michigan. The Van Raalte Farm Civil War Muster is free to the public and features two days worth of music, impressions of historical figures, performances, medical scenarios, period-style vendors and church service, and Civil War battle reenactments. It’s exciting. It’s fun. It’s educational. It’s family-friendly, so bring everyone except the pets (they are skittish at the sound of gunfire!).
