Civil War regiments are ready to recruit you! Unit Commanders will instruct young soldiers aged 8-14 in the structure, skills, and customs of the military during the Civil War. Throughout both days, Civil War reenactors will open the camp to students, enabling them and other visitors to examine uniforms and equipment. In addition, participate in many of the same activities that Civil War soldiers did in the field, from playing games and singing songs, to marching, drilling, skirmishing, and other planned scenarios.

Lunch will be provided by BNHV.

Non-firing wooden muskets and battle flags provided.
