Civil War Day Camp

July 15 - 17, 9 AM - 4 PM

The Civil War Camp experience introduces children to daily life of Civil War Union soldiers. This camp will include drill, camp life, recreation, and letter writing in the style of those experienced by Civil War soldiers, aided by professional reenactors. Men from our area were recruited to the 8th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment.
