One of the largest Civil War reenactments west of the Mississippi and the largest in Northern California is returning to Freezeout Canyon in the charming town of Duncans Mills, California, on the Russian River. 

On Saturday,  July 20, and Sunday, July 21, CIVIL WAR DAYS,  a two-day living history reenactment open to the public, gives visitors the opportunity to interact with the soldiers and civilians of the Civil War, getting a personal glimpse of the years 1861–1865 and a better understanding of the events that formed our country. The spirit & history of the American Civil War will be portrayed by hundreds of reenactors for this family-oriented event.

You are invited to walk among the reenactors, talk with them, ask them questions, and experience firsthand this very dynamic period in our history. These reenactors are passionate about American history and have worked hard to accurately portray and bring to life Union and Confederate soldiers, merchants, tradesmen, musicians, doctors, nurses, and townspeople caught up in this country’s struggle.  

It is when differing views of American government, preservation of the Union, slavery, and states’ rights moved men to engage in a war that took more than 700,000 lives and redefined the future of our country. 

You can visit the camps of the Union and Confederacy and see how civilians lived and served with the armies of 1863 in what was referred to as the “first modern war”. This is an unforgettable, educational experience for all ages.

Adult tickets are $12, kids 7–12 are $6, and children 6 and under are free. No bank cards are accepted on the day of the event.
