Although it has been over 150 years since our country has fought in the Civil War, the diaries, stories, and lessons still remain. Pinecrest Village is transformed into a Civil War encampment where visitors can meet famous figures of the past and experience firsthand a turbulent time period in our nation’s history. Join reenactors as they stage a battle complete with raging cannons and marching infantry. Learn how the nation changed through the insights of local people who made a difference in history. The family-friendly event features food, fun and shopping on “Sutler’s Row” for traditional Civil War-era reproduction products.
First year living history event coordinated by the 2nd WI. Not a maximum effort event.
Civil War Re-enactors bring history to life during the Civil War Heritage Weekend held on the grounds of Norskedalen. Each year, the second weekend of October sees Norskedalen transform into a different area in the war torn South.
