Visit the campsites of the Civil War soldiers and the Indians to see how they lived their times:


  • A campsite complete with tent, cooking pot, gun rack, etc.
  • A Six-Man Unit demonstrating marching, loading, and firing of muskets.
  • A Medical Historian’s display and explanation of medical instruments used in the war.
  • An exhibit of women’s clothing including a ballroom gown and the grieving black dress.
  • The demonstration and firing of a replica cannon used during the war. 

Teachers and school officials have enthusiastically requested that the Living History return next year.
