Civil War Encampment Weekend at Sully Historic Site

Every August the Sully Historic Site has its annual Civil War Encampment Weekend. Come watch and interact with re-enactors as they live out their lives during the war-torn years of the 19th century.

Visitors during this weekend will see firsthand how people lived, worked and/or served in one of the armies during this era. Living history participants will "skirmish" and you'll see infantry, artillery and cavalry as it existed in the 1860s. You can view and/or ask questions to learn more about this pivotal time in American history. See what encampments looked like and also experience live music and fashion of that era.

This year's event takes place on Aug. 15 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and Aug. 16 (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.). The Civil War Weekend is one of a series of historic weekends and events the county-owned facility runs. These are all family-friendly events.

As customary with any of Sully Historic Site's events, a house tour of the property is also included in the price of admission. For the Civil War Weekend event, prices are $9 for adults, $7 for seniors and children.
