Reading can only get you so far, this is a great opportunity to truly understand the Civil War soldier’s experience. Put on the uniform, don your gear and experience how soldiers drilled, fought, ate and slept during the Civil War. On the very same fields where the youth of the past had their “hearts touched with fire,” your youngsters will participate in activities designed to strengthen the virtues of leadership, teamwork, ethics, and responsibility—such as confronting moral challenges and leading their peers through tactical skirmishes.
Bring someone between the ages of 8-18—your child, grandchild, or friend—for a FREE special event to live like a Civil War soldier, as part of our Civil War Trust Generations program. Take a battlefield tour, march in line of battle, eat some hardtack and sleep in Civil War quarters under experienced, professional instructors at Pamplin Historical Park. The event runs from 10 am Saturday to 10 am Sunday.
