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 a look at the full schedule, click here.
