Civil War Re-enactment
Calico Civil War Re-enactment
Imagine yourself under martial law in a town occupied by the Confederate Army. Suddenly a cannon blasts, smoke fills the air, and a hundred Union soldiers come rushing in. Before you can turn to run, a battle is raging before your very eyes.
Calico Ghost Town Regional Park will come alive with mock battles, historical presentations, troop inspections, artillery demonstrations, and much more.
Battles will occur daily at 11:45 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Before the battles begins, you can witness President Lincoln as he inspects his troops. After the battle, you can listen to him share The Gettysburg Address.
Held February 16th & 17th 2019. Calico is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily. Saturday and Sunday admission to the event is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for youth (4-11), and free for children 3 and under.
