Civil War Encampment in Pewaukee goes back in time

The Civil War was fought 150 years ago, but for some people that era is as fresh as the morning’s dew.

That’s because they are living it. They are re-enactors who are constant reminders of that important period in our nation’s history .

You’ll be able to see these re-enactors and experience what life was like for Civil War soldiers and ordinary citizens at the Civil War Encampment from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday on the grounds of St. Mary’s Church and School, 449 Wisconsin Ave., Pewaukee.

Talk to a blacksmith and other tradesmen of the time and visit with soldiers and townsfolk.

At 1:30 p.m. both days the soldiers will assemble for drill presentations. At 2:30 p.m. Saturday, the women get their turn in A Timekeepers fashion show.

Sunday, there will be a church cemetery walk at 2 p.m. to visit the graves of those who lost their lives during the Civil War.

After the encampment, head over to Pewaukee’s lakefront for Taste of Lake Country until 11 p.m.
