The Final Months of the Civil War 1865 July 18th (10am-4pm)
By summer 1865 the Civil War is almost over, yet surviving soldiers continue to go through the motions of war. Eating whatever they could find, wearing tattered clothing, using weathered weapons; circumstances hardly bearable. The civilians back home have too suffered through the dark years of wartime and everyone is wearing thin. The civilians have long been rationed and emotionally beaten as so many families mourned the loss of loved ones. This living history event will focus on a day in the life of American soldiers and civilians during this devastating time in history. Ongoing demonstrations, talks, and exhibits will discuss what life was like during the last few months of the American Civil War some 150 years ago. Admission: $8 Adults, $7 Seniors/Students, Children 5 and Under FREE
