On Saturday and Sunday, October 12 and 13, the Civil War Living History Encampment will return to LancasterHistory’s Campus of History. Civil War reenactors from across the region will set up a Federal (Union) camp, educational displays, and more to recreate Civil War-era Lancaster and the pressures of protecting the former U.S. President James Buchanan and his home. Soldier and civilian tents will dot the Campus of History grounds where visitors will be able to view military drills, chat with the soldiers, and attend various educational programs for free throughout the weekend. A full list of the weekend’s activities is available online at https://www.lancasterhistory.org/encampment2019.
