Celebrate the Civil War sesquicentennial commemoration by experiencing one of the largest Civil War re-enactments and encampments in Wisconsin. A full schedule of activities both days, with two authentic battles re-enacted each day. Watch the spectacle of hundreds of soldiers – cavalry, infantry and artillery – as they struggle across the field of conflict. Experience the 1860s clash of arms between North and South as Union and Confederate troops set up camp, conduct drills and offer a variety of demonstrations. Meet Abraham Lincoln as he visits with Union troops. Civilian and women's issues, a medical field hospital, and music of the Civil War era are presented interactively each day, and special hands-on experiences abound. Expanded food and beverage offerings and an extensive array of Civil War items are available for sale on site.
