Every year at Civic Park in Reynoldsburg, a group of dedicated volunteers camps out at the park for two days. Their goal is to educate people about a very special time in American history.
The 2011 event is sponsored by the following groups:
The Society of Civil War Surgeons
The US Corp of Topographical Engineers
The 5th Kentucky Confederate Infantry
Company B and Byrnes Battery B
Reynoldsburg Parks and Recreation Department
More info on the event can be found here on the official Facebook PAGE Using authentic period costume, tools, techniques and tactics, the re-enactors show what life and war were like back in the 1860’s.
You are encouraged to talk and interact with the re-enactors who are well versed in civil war history.
Then there is a treat – several times a day, battles are enacted in the field with fence rows, hay bails and cannon fire.
