A day-long celebration of the music of the Civil War era.
The Band of the California Battalion, a recreation of a Union Brass Band, will play some of the great martial music of the Civil War, from Battle Hymn of the Republic to Dixie, while Sausage Grinder, a local country blues band, performs songs that kept soldiers entertained around the campfire. Visit Crossroads West Cafe for a plate of BBQ and explore Empire and Liberty, an exhibition that will change the way you look at—and listen to—the Civil War.
Civil War-era stage décor provided by Riley’s Stone Soup Farm and Heritage Orchard.
Attendees are encouraged to dress in period dress or uniform. No firearms or weapons, including replicas, are permitted on site.
