Civil War Weekend at Historic Cold Spring Village
The Civil War comes to life on Saturday and Sunday, September 14th and 15th, from 10am to 4:30pm. Visitors can tour Union and Confederate camps and meet authentically clad and equipped military and civilian reenactors who will discuss the everyday lives of Civil War soldiers and the roles civilians played in supporting them. Historian Mike Kochan, who played a vital role in the recovery of the Confederate submarine H.L. Hunley in 2000, will have a display of Civil War-era naval and telegraph technology. Educator and weapons expert Jack Meyers will be in the Village Welcome Center with a large display of Civil War-era firearms. Stirring battle reenactments will occur both days at 2 pm, and vendors of reproduction period merchandise will be found on “Sutler’s Row.” The Village, which re-creates a rural community in the 1800s, serves as the perfect backdrop in presenting this event to the public, which is generously sponsored by The CapeBank Foundation.
