Civil War Reenactment 2018

August 11 @ 10:00 am - August 12 @ 5:00 pm

Civil War Weekend August 11 & 12, 2018, 10am-5pm daily

Thousands of visitors and reenactors flock to Hale Farm & Village annually for this popular summertime event—the largest annual Civil War reenactments in Ohio. Meet soldiers, cavalry and civilians. Hear the sounds of battle and smell the gunpowder. Shake hands with President Lincoln or shop for a hoopskirt. Don’t miss the excitement!

On Saturday, August 11 at 2:30pm and Sunday August 12 at 2:00pm, visitors can experience the recreation of the first day of Gettysburg. This year we honor the soldiers who fought in this pivotal 1863 Battle. For over 150 years, the Battle of Gettysburg has rightly been hailed, by many historians, as a turning point in the American Civil War. It was at this tiny Pennsylvania crossroads village that the Union Army of the Potomac repulsed the Confederacy’s Army of Northern Virginia.

Hale Farm is open 10:00am-5:00pm daily

Public Event Tickets: $10 adults (ages 13+); $5 youth (ages 3-12  yrs); members, youth 2yrs and under & active military are free. Two-day tickets are available – Adults $15, Youth $7.50.
