Strathearn Historical Park will transform itself into a small town in rural America in the 1860’s for the 8th Annual Civil War Days Encampment on Saturday, February 2, 2019 from 10am-4pm and February 3, 2019 from 10am-3pm.
Step back to another place and time, when President Lincoln could take a break from his Washington duties to give a speech on the steps of our Strathearn House. Here, costumed civilians, as well as soldiers from the north and south stand ready in their camps, eager to tell their stories to the passing visitors. Sergeants drill groups of local boys and girls curious to experience military life. Skirmishes, as well as artillery, infantry and cavalry demonstrations will take place throughout the weekend.
