Civil War Days - May 18 & 19, 2019
Civil War Days 2019 Banner
Experience firsthand a radical time in our nation’s history when Naper Settlement transforms into an 1864 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!

ATTENTION GUESTS: The cannons are still firing today, May 19th! ?? The battle is being moved to noon today with a skirmish happening at 2:30 PM! Come on down!
