The Huntington Beach Historical Society commemorates the anniversary of the Civil War with a weekend-long living history re-enactment of the War Between the States.

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 daily, about 20 minutes after each battle.

Families can visit "Reedsburg," the historic town of civilian folk, to learn about daily life in the 19th century. On Saturday, there is a Twilight Concert featuring The Armory Band at 5:30pm, followed a political rally for the leading candidates of 1880. The Evening Dance is at 7:30pm.  A taco dinner is offered Saturday evening ($8).
