Immerse yourself in history by traveling back to 1863. The 3-day Civil War Reenactment event in Fort Stevens State Park recreates events of the American Civil War - several live battles as well as military and civilian life during the mid-1800s.
You can watch impressive battle reenactments with infantry, artillery, and cavalry as well as walk around a military camp with sutlers. You can also see how the church service was held at the time of the Civil War and even observe how medics of that time treated the wounded. Reenactment participants bring history to life providing opportunities to learn more about the country and its past.
During your weekend, you will meet President Abraham Lincoln, see a fashion show, listen to fife and drum practice, and watch the field artillery demonstrations.
