If Spielberg’s Lincoln had you jonesing for a deeper look into the bloodiest American war, you’ll find your fill and more during the 2013 Civil War Weekend at the Heritage Village Museum in Sharonville.
This weekend includes more than your run-of-the-mill battle reenactment; guests will experience the ins and outs of soldiering life, from reenactments of life in the camps to taste testing integral parts of a soldier’s diet. Activities include 19th-century-style arts and crafts, Civil War spy technology and secret codes and the annual Civil War Ball on Sunday at 7 p.m.
Ample parking and concessions will be available, and it wouldn’t be a Civil War without Jefferson Davis and Abraham Lincoln on hand to answer any lingering questions.
10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday. $7 adults, $4 children. Heritage Village Museum, 11450 Lebanon Road, Sharonville, 513-563-9484, heritagevillagecincinnati.org.
