Civil War Encampment Day in Easton
The Historical Society of Easton commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Civil War on July 21, 2012, with a Civil War Encampment Day at the Bradley-Hubbell House. Soldiers and civilian re-enactors from the Company F 14th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry, a not-for-profit, living history and preservation organization, will portray the original 14th Connecticut daily life starting with a military firing drill, preparation of the noon meal on a open outdoor fire pit, camp skills such as rifle loading, knapsack, and blanket rolls.
Civilian women will be on hand to present how the home front helped the North win the war and demonstrate medical care and family life during the conflict. Come learn about how soldiers and civilians lived during this critical era of American history.
Volunteers will also be needed to help run the encampment day. If you are interested in helping,
