Civil War re-enactment

Ellen M. Strzelecki

Ben Hubbard of the Plantation Agricultural Museum and Mike Lewis of the Central Arkansas Living Historians give a Civil War re-enactment July 12 to the attendees of the Cabot Gymnastics Academy summer camp. Topics included the reason for the war, the differences between the Union and Confederate soldiers and how their uniforms and how economic class impacted both armies. Participants were able to view and hold period-correct pistols, as well as a muzzle l0ader and learned how each played a role in the war as well as to view an army camp.
