Civil War Immersion Weekend

Company B returns….

October 14th -15th, 2017


Saturday – 10am to 5pm
Sunday – 12pm to 5pm

Each year, the second weekend of October sees Norskedalen transform into a different area in the war torn South. This year, the reenactment will portray a skirmish that led to the Battle of Perryville, Kentucky in October of 1862. Rather than depict a major battle, the fighting that takes place at Norskedalen highlights the realities of the smaller engagements that occurred during the war. The intersection of the battlefield and the home front is one example of this, and allows for a more comprehensive understanding of the war from the perspective of the soldiers who fought and the civilians who remained at home, becoming unwitting spectators to the war.

Admission for General Public Days: Adults $7, Children $4, Families $18.
