Battle of Deep Creek Civil War Re-enactment

When: May 28-30 2016

Learning about history doesn’t come much easier than experiencing it yourself. That must be part of the appeal of Civil War reenactments like the big one happening just outside Spokane over Memorial Day weekend, this one focused on the Battle of Deep Creek. Besides hearing and seeing the artillery fly, the camp includes all manner of more genteel pursuits, like a Civil War fashion show, Abraham Lincoln and Robert E. Lee (well, actors in the roles) discussing the war and a lantern tour through the opposing camps.
