The Civil War was fought 150 years ago, but for some people that era is as fresh as the morning’s dew.
That’s because they are living it. They are re-enactors who are constant reminders of that important period in our nation’s history .
You’ll be able to see these re-enactors and experience what life was like for Civil War soldiers and ordinary citizens at the Civil War Encampment from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday on the grounds of St. Mary’s Church and School, 449 Wisconsin Ave., Pewaukee.
Talk to a blacksmith and other tradesmen of the time and visit with soldiers and townsfolk.
At 1:30 p.m. both days the soldiers will assemble for drill presentations. At 2:30 p.m. Saturday, the women get their turn in A Timekeepers fashion show.
Sunday, there will be a church cemetery walk at 2 p.m. to visit the graves of those who lost their lives during the Civil War.
After the encampment, head over to Pewaukee’s lakefront for Taste of Lake Country until 11 p.m.
