Civil War Reenactment at Pioneer Living History Village





Jan 10-11, 2015


9am - 4pm

Pioneer Living History Village

The Village Green and surrounding grounds will once again reverberate to the sound of cannon-fire. Soldiers in Blue and Gray will face off in life-and-death confrontation, hoping for victory, praying for the chance to live another day.

Staged by the AZ Civil War Council, re-enactors will descend on Pioneer to participate in battles and skirmishes during the two day event. In addition to 2 or 3 battles each day, visitors will be treated to short seminars illuminating the life of the average soldier during this epic time in our nation’s history. Learn about the weapons and their effectiveness. Walk into a Union or Confederate camp and chat with the men and women who had to suffer the privations and the primitive conditions it demanded.
