The Civil War springs to life at Pierce Farm Center on April 28 and 29!
Hundreds of re-enactors will recreate the epic conflict of the American Civil War on the broad fields of Pierce College.
Visitors will view exciting cavalry charges, artillery barrages, and infantry assaults that were part of America's watershed event, one that transformed a mere union of states into a nation!
Throughout each day, demonstrations and presentations will take place, including Victorian dancing, military drill, and skills and crafts from the era.
Historical notables from the past will address all of those present, and President Lincoln will give his famous Gettysburg Address as part of a grand "Living History" program.
After seeing reenactors and historical personages who appear as if they have leaped from the pages of history books, visitors will leave the event with a far better appreciation of the political issues, the aspects of daily life, and the great sacrifices and hardships endured by both sides in this greatest of American conflicts, the consequences of which still affect our country today.
