Civil War Re-enactment at American Legion Post

Civil War Re-enactment at American Legion PostAugust 11 & 12, 9am – American Legion Post 65, 263 NE 5th Avenue, Delray Beach

Come join us for a Civil War Re-enactment, a free event sponsored by the American Legion and provided to citizens of the community. It is the American Legion Post 65′s honor to provide this historical and educational reenactment. The men and women taking part in this will provide a historical perspective of what life was like in the civil war camps during 1865. The uniforms, weapons, and utensils are authentic. Members of both the Union and the Confederacy are in role. They will answer questions addressed to them as though you are in 1865. We have also asked our local Boy Scout troop to attend. Civil War re-enactors will setup their tents and campsite on our property in Delray Beach. They will have 38 people for the even, including a canon! Many are Veterans themselves and they enjoy talking to the kids, plus showing them what it was like to live over 150 years ago. Contact POST #65 for more info at 561-330-6905.
