Battery D-Civil War Encampment
July 27 – July 29
March to a different drum as you discover part of Michigan’s Civil War heritage. Battery D, First Michigan Light Artillery, recreates army life of the period with artillery and small arms drills, cooking, soldiers’ pastimes and much more! The encampment features more than 25 costumed interpreters, tents and full-scale artillery pieces, as well as authentically reproduced mess gear, small arms and other period artifacts.
Throughout the weekend, visitors can also take in skits that offer a look at a Civil War-era army field hospital and other aspects of military life.
This event is free of charge, although a Michigan state parks Recreation Passport is required for park entry.
