Although it has been over 150 years since our country has fought in the Civil War, the diaries, stories, and lessons still remain. Pinecrest Village is transformed into a Civil War encampment where visitors can meet famous figures of the past and experience firsthand a turbulent time period in our nation’s history. Join reenactors as they stage a battle complete with raging cannons and marching infantry. Learn how the nation changed through the insights of local people who made a difference in history.

Become a part of history and join us for this for a must see Saturday evening program. Experience camp-life with evening light. Feel like part of the encampment as period dressed historical interpreters welcome you with lantern light through the Confederate, Union and civilian camps. You’ll also make a stop at a Civil-War era dance where you can waltz along or be a wallflower.
