Fort Tejon Historical Association - Civil War Events

This State Historic Park hosts regular Civil Ware reenactments throughout the summer. Rosanne and I visited with a friend a few years ago when they where working on a book that was set in and around Andersonville prison. The battles were quite amazing to watch and strolling through the camps afterwards truly felt like we were going back in time. The participants are a wealth of historical information and love talking about the period.

If you or your children are interested in this period of American History, I highly recommend a visit to Fort Tejon, The fort is open most days and provides lessons in California History when not hosting a reenactment.

Admission to the reenactment is $3-$5.

From the site...

Watch volunteers present skirmishes and demonstrate the tactics used in the eastern United States during the American Civil War. See troops of the Union and Confederate Armies, all authentically uniformed and equipped. Meet the soldiers & civilians. Tour their camps and see how they lived. There is one small Saturday skirmish at 4:00 PM. Sunday battles are at 10:30 AM and 1:00 PM (Approximately 30-45 minutes each.) Guided tours of the camps are offered between the battles on Sunday (only). Living History presentations include Manual of Arms, Artillery and Field Hospital demonstrations.
