The Lamoni Reenactment
The Lamoni Civil War Reenactment is this coming weekend, September 4-6. This Iowa event includes Civil War reenactments with Federal and Confederate soldiers portraying battle action. It also includes many other activities. These are photos from a previous Lamoni event to give an idea of what you might see. When I was there I visited with a spinner, a broom maker, musicians, a blacksmith, soldiers, vendors, etc. etc. Everyone was friendly and happy to explain what they were doing.
Have you ever wanted to time travel? Are you looking for a change of pace? Would you like to learn something about the old ways? This is the place. Your kids might think this is the coolest thing they’ve seen in a while.
