Civil War Remembrance at Greenfield Village in Dearborn

Live re-enactments are among the entertainment during this annual event at The Henry Ford, May 25-27, 2013

A time to commemorate the period that sparked the creation of paper money, the Underground Railroad, Emancipation Proclamation and a new time of freedom and prosperity in America is just around the corner. Civil War Remembrance returns to the Greenfield Village in Dearborn, May 25-27, 2013 – and the event will educate and entertain people of all ages.

See historical presentations at the Village Pavilion, five live re-enactments, pictures of Infantry soldiers and participate in hands-on activities happening throughout the day.

Join The Henry Ford in a moment of silence at 3 p.m. on Monday to honor those who are fighting for our nation and who have fought in the past.
