The American Civil War (1861-1865) began with the firing upon Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861 in Charleston, South Carolina. Civil War re-enactments, with camp life and battle scenes, occur in many U.S. states, even in the west. Particular battles and events are recreated with as much historical accuracy as possible. Reenactors dress, cook, eat, and even "die" as real Civil War soldiers did. Submit your Civil war event here...
