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

The First Battle of Petersburg – Saturday, August 10 at 2:30pm & Sunday August 11 at 2:00pm 

Visit Hale Farm & Village on August 10 and 11 for Ohio’s largest annual Civil War Reenactment.
Experience the sights, sounds, smells and emotion of the battle.

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. See history come to life!

On Saturday, August 10 at 2:30pm and Sunday August 11 at 2:00pm, visitors can experience a presentation of the first Battle of Petersburg, an unsuccessful Union assault on the city of Petersburg, Virginia, June 15, 1864. To recreate this battle Hale Farm & Village will be constructing earthworks in the north pasture where the battle takes place.  During the Civil War, Petersburg was protected by fortifications known as the Dimmock Line, a line of earthworks 10 miles long, east of the city, including 55 artillery batteries, and anchored on the Appomattox River.

Other highlights of the weekend will include a visit from President Lincoln, Camp Chase Fifes and Drums and shopping on Sutler’s Row with vendors of Civil War era merchandise. Cavalry mounted drills, foot soldier drills, and artillery demonstrations will also take place throughout the weekend.

Admission is $10 for adults or a two-day ticket is $15.00 and for children (12 and under) $5, or a two-day ticket is $7.50. Online ticket sales will be offered until  August 9. After that date, tickets will need to be purchased at the door. Each day offers activities for the whole family and the opportunity to experience life during the American Civil War.

Make the weekend extraordinary by riding the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad to the event. Tickets should be reserved in advance through the CVSR.

During the festival, enjoy lunch at Café 1810 in the Visitor’s Center or shop The Marketplace at Hale Farm & Village. The MarketPlace features handcrafted at Hale items as well as many other Ohio made crafts and souvenirs.
