The cavalry comes to Centennial Village Museum during its annual Civil War Weekend event. This Civil War Living History event allows visitors to witness a day in the life of a Civil War soldier. Each day of the event features a 1 p.m. battle reenactment and drills. Costumed reenactors will have their tents set up on the southeastern corner of the facility and are living that weekend as they would have during the Civil War—many using historic wares true to the time period. Visitors are encouraged to visit and interact with soldiers in the encampment. The event also features blacksmith, chuckwagon cooking and print shop demonstrations.
I am a wife and mother of two rambunctious boys living in Loveland Colorado after our brief stay on the Western Slope. We are transplants from the beautiful mountain town of Flagstaff Arizona. But nothing compares to the Rocky Mountains! While I grew up in the Phoenix area, I moved to Flagstaff when I went to college at NAU where I got my degree in journalism. I want to work with local businesses. If you are local, own a business and found this website, it wasn’t by accident. Shoot me an email and let’s work together!
