Sandusky Ohio Civil War Encampment

Above are just a few pictures taken today at the Ohio Civil War Encampment at the Ohio Veterans Home at Columbus Avenue & Strub Road in Sandusky, Ohio. The Encampment is taking place on August 24 and August 25, 2013, so there is still time to take in some of the events. Featured are artillery and infantry demonstrations,  re-enactors, speakers, and live Civil War music by several performers. Sunday's events include a church service on the north lawn of the Veterans Home grounds. Today my grandsons and I got to see President and Mrs. Lincoln, Ambrose Burnside, several soldiers and musicians, and a Civil War era reporter. What a fun way to learn about American History! Volunteers at the camp will provide you with a full list of ongoing activities.

I attended last year with my dad. It is a wonderful experience.

The costumed re-enactors, the music, the weather, was so amazing!
