One of the perks of Civil War Days at Gordon Hall is seeing period weapons in action throughout the weekend-long historical event.
Union forces from the 4th Michigan Volunteer Infantry, Company A and the 1st Michigan Light Artillery, Battery B (led by Al Day) will be on hand tomorrow, as they were this Saturday to passively and actively display the weapons of war that were used 150 years ago to defeat the American Confederacy and hold our nation’s union together.
Military and civilian camps open again Sunday at 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., with simulated artillery fire scheduled to occur periodically during this same time frame.
Both sides of the conflict will hold a 1:30 p.m. skirmish tomorrow, which will be the final clash of the final year of the sesquicentennial anniversary of the Civil War.
