To see the reenactment on the 3rd day of the war was amazing. The people did a great job, and the moderator did an excellent job of the explaining what actually happened.

This reenactment is simply amazing. It's great for kids thru adults. Of course, it's in July and outside, so it was hot this year (2017) There are hundreds of reenactors who recreate both camp and battles. There is incredible attention to detail. Due to the...More

This was our first reenactment that we went to. It was very hot and crowded. We saw the "Ambush at Hunterstown". It was okay. I think we all thought it would be more detailed. Unfortunately we left due to the heat & did not see...More

Wow!! The battle re-enactments were narrated with snippets of information about what was happening during the real battle. The use of horses, carbines, sabers, guns and artillery and cavalry was extremely well organized and well utilized. The participants stayed in tents on the grounds and...More

I've attended the past two reenactments and I will attend many more. The event is in July and, indeed, the weather is hot. Bring a hat, sunscreen, and drink plenty of water. There is a living history area where you can experience what life was...More

If you like being crowded, hot with no access to bathrooms than this is the place for you. I would avoid this like the plague especially in July.

Lots of hype. If you like live cannon booms. The final charge and the Armistead taking the center cannon was. The show. Free reinactments all over the park were just as good. Sales tents made it a festival. Good to expirience once but would not...More
