Civil War Living History Weekend


Join us on Saturday, July 23, and Sunday, July 24, for Civil War Living History Weekend at GCV&M! We will step beyond battles and behind front lines to present interactive and educational programming that will bring the many sides of NY State in the 1860s to life. Throughout the weekend, Museum interpreters and guest speakers, and performers will share stories of how the war impacted all residents of New York. Walk through a military encampment, experience artillery demonstrations, discover the origins of modern mourning practices, learn about the experiences of members of the USCT, and compare pre-and post-war fashions, and so much more.
