Camps are open to the public starting at 10am, with battles scheduled Sat at 1:30pm and 4pm, and Sun at 11am and 2pm. President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address is delivered at 2pm on Saturday; his proposed amendment on slavery is given at multiple times.

New this year are programs on California's role in the Civil War, Latin American Service in the Civil War, and Native American service, politics, and conflicts in the Civil War.

Guests can meet President Lincoln, General Grant, and many many other historical figures from the war and participate in discussions on important topics of the era. A visit to "Reedsburg," the historic town of civilian folk, offers a glimpse at daily life in the 19th century. On Saturday, there is a Twilight Concert featuring The Armory Band at 5:30pm.
