Battles did not occur every day in the Civil War, especially in the winter months when Southern rain and snow made dirt roads nearly impassable for marching armies. The life of a Civil War soldier has been described as long months of boredom punctuated by moments of sheer terror. Find out what soldiers did during the winter to keep themselves busy, warm, and ready for battle when the armies began to move in the spring.
Authentically costumed re-enactors from the Second Minnesota Battery of Light Artillery will set up Camp and share their in-depth knowledge of the Civil War with visitors. This is an interactive, self-paced program, with activities for both children and adults.
Saturday, February 23, from 10:30 am -1:30 pm
