Throughout both days, Union and Confederate troops will be skirmishing (fighting) throughout the park. Visitors are reminded to stay clear of troops who are so engaged. During the staged battles, visitors are reminded to stay behind the caution tape for your protection and that of the reenactors.

Visitors are welcome to stop by the encampments of both Union and Confederate reenactors and talk with them about the life of the common soldier during the War Between the States. Visitors should feel free to ask about the food they are eating, the weapons being used, drill, camp life and even tactics.

Please remember that not all reenactors will be as knowledgeable as others. You may want to ask the same question of multiple reenactors. Remember as well that answers may be different depending upon the encampment.
