Civil War Encampment Saturday, October 3

Saturday, October 3, 2015 - 9:00am

Civil War Encampment Saturday, October 3 9:00-5:30PM Step back into history and enter the camp life of a Union soldier from the Massachusetts 22nd, which included Woburn residents. Witness their drills, maneuvers, and the firing of their muskets, and view period weapons and artifacts from both the re-enactors’ and the Woburn Public Library’s collections. After experiencing the war from a soldier’s point of view, learn about civilians in the United States Sanitary Commission, too. An educational experience for the whole family, we invite you to join us for this one-day encampment! This event is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Woburn Public Library and the Woburn Public Library.
