Mark the century and a half since the start of the Civil War by learning more about what a soldier’s life was like. You’ll march and make camp just like Civil War soldiers. Dress in a Civil War jacket and hat, cook bacon and taste hardtack, learn a drill that soldiers did using Civil War "dummy" guns, and even pick up some Civil War slang. Follow along as a Civil War re-enactor takes you on a search for Confederate soldiers hiding out at one of the farms at Old World Wisconsin. Boys AND girls welcome! After camp, be sure to visit our Civil War Wisconsin event Aug 1 – Sep 2, where we’ll have different activities throughout the month. You and your entire family might meet reenactors, visit a camp, help out the Sanitary Commission and pack boxes for soldiers, listen to music of the time, and lots more!
