American Civil War Encampment and Reenactment

Saturday, September 22, 2012

Civil War Living Historians of Collin County and the Allen Heritage Guild will be hosting an encampment at the Allen Heritage Village on September 22 - 23 to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War. Each day, the Heritage Village will be a small village captured by the Yankees and then recaptured by the Confederates.

The public is invited to view and learn about the life of a typical Civil War soldier, both Union and Confederate. The Living Historians will answer questions from the period. There will be campfires, drilling practices, bayonet exercises, a medical tent, soap making, and blacksmith demonstrations.

A pie baking contest will be held Saturday at 11 a.m.  The Guild will sell water and barbeque at noon on Saturday.  At 7:30 p.m., stories will be told around a campfire.
