Civil War Encampment Weekend

July 28, 2017 all-day
Fort Wilkins Historic State Park
Copper Harbor, MI
United States

Battery D, First Michigan Light Artillery, recreates Civil War army life with artillery and small arms drills, cooking, soldiers’ pastimes and much more! The encampment features more than 25 costumed interpreters, tents and full-scale artillery pieces, as well as authentically reproduced mess gear, small arms and other period artifacts.

Throughout the weekend, visitors can also take in skits that offer a look at a Civil War-era army field hospital and other aspects of military life. For more information, click here.

This event is free of charge, although a Michigan State Parks Recreation Passport is required for park entry.
