Local Civil War Re-enactment

1067
            Come join the American Legion Post 65 for a free Civil War Re-Enactment event sponsored by the American Legion and provided to citizens of the community. The event takes place on Saturday, August 11 from 9 am – 7 PM and Sunday, August 12 from 9 am – 4 PM at American Legion Post 65 located at 263 NE 5th Avenue in Delray Beach. It is the American Legion Post 65’s honor to provide this historical and educational reenactment. The men and women taking part in this will provide a historical perspective of what life was like in the civil war camps during 1865. The uniforms, weapons, and utensils are authentic. Members of both the Union and the Confederacy are in role. They will answer questions addressed to them as though you are in 1865. Civil War re-enactors will setup their tents and campsite on the American Legion property in Delray Beach. They will have 38 people for the event…including a canon! Many are Veterans themselves and they enjoy talking to the kids, plus showing them what it was like to live over 150 years ago. The Civil War food menu, for sale to the public, will include: Muzzle Loader Hot Dogs, Trail Patty Hamburgers, Camp Fire Baked Beans, Ice Cold Whistle-Wetting Beverages and Well Water.
