WELCOME TO HARTFORD CITY CIVIL WAR DAYS

Welcome to Hartford City Civil War Days! Indiana's largest Civil War Reenactment and Artillery Night Firing event. Step back to 1864 to see how life was for our ancestors during this time. Converse with civilians, sutlers and soldiers of the time. This event is a reenactment and living history that portrays the time when this great nation was divided. Brother against brother, father against son and son against father. During this event you will be able to observe demonstrators and ongoing presentations covering the period of 1864. There will also be battles during the entire weekend portraying multiple engagements during the year of 1864. Visit the sutlers who sold their goods to soldiers and civilians alike. Walk through camps and converse with the presenters. You can also purchase both period and non-period food. Visit the blacksmiths, weavers, spinners, rug makers, refugees, the medicine show and much more! Most importantly do not forget to come out and see Indiana's Largest Artillery Night firing event! Hope to see you there!
