Naper Settlement is transformed into a Civil War encampment where visitors can meet famous figures of the past and experience firsthand a turbulent time period in our nation’s history. Hundreds of reenactors participate, culminating in a battle complete with raging cannons and marching infantry.
This family-friendly event features food, fun, music and shopping on “Sutler’s Row” for traditional Civil War-era reproduction products. The battle begins at 2:30 PM each day. The Weed Ladies will be selling spring silk and dried florals in the Daniels House.
