Civil War Living Historians of Collin County and the Allen Heritage Guild will be hosting an encampment at the Allen Heritage Village, 550 St. Mary Dr. on Saturday and Sunday, October 19th and 20th
The Living Historians will set up Union and Confederate soldiers’ camps and cook meals in the fire pit. They will stage a mock court martial, perform Bugle calls, display artifacts, conduct drills for kids, demonstrate black powder shooting and have a battle skirmish once each day. There will be blacksmiths creating iron pieces and entertainment. The Heritage Village will be open to tour.
This is a great opportunity to let children step back in time. Free and open to the public.
These Civil War Living Historians have participated in battlefield reenactments at Gettysburg, Shiloh and Vicksburg. They have also appeared in Wishbone, Texas and National Park Service films, and the movie Gettysburg.
