Civil War Weekend

June 11, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

$7 – $12

Members of the Third Michigan Volunteer Infantry Co. F will be at the park in Whitehall on June 10 and 11 for a Civil War Encampment. The men and women of the Michigan Third are as authentic as possible in their dress and manner as they portray what life was like during the Civil War for the military and civilians. They will set up camp for the weekend which visitors may tour to meet the reenactors. This year, they will be joined by members of the 9th Kentucky Co. C, a volunteer Confederate Infantry Unit. Each day, a drill and battle will be held in Activity Field at the center of the park.

On Sunday, there will be a Church Service in the pavilion. The Dodworth Duo will serenade attendees through the park groups both days. They perform songs of soldiers and civilians during the Civil War, folk melodies, and popular ballads of the time. Author Erica Emelander, who wrote the book “Though War Shall Rise Against Me” under the name Marie LaPres, will speak at 1:00 pm both days. Her book tells the story of 20 year old Jennie Wade and her three friends who lived in Gettysburg when the battle occurred.

Admission for this special event weekend is $12 for adults and teens, $10 for 65 and older, and $7 for 12 and younger. Children two and younger are admitted at no charge.

The event will take place from 10 am to 4 pm both days.
