Civil War Days - May 19 & 20, 2018
Experience firsthand a radical time in our nation’s history when Naper Settlement transforms into an 1863 Civil War encampment, where visitors can meet famous figures of the past, like Abraham Lincoln and Harriet Tubman. Hundreds of reenactors participate, staging a battle complete with blasting cannons and marching infantry.
This family-friendly event features food, fun and shopping on "Sutler's Row" for traditional Civil War-era reproduction products. Guests can enjoy the historical sounds of a 13-piece brass band, have a free vintage photograph taken, hear the Gettysburg Address and so much more! The battle begins at 2:30 PM each day!
Daily performance schedule coming soon!
