Third Annual Hope Civil War Days
Join the Hope Star-Journal and partners -- the Yellow Trail Museum and Bartholomew County Historical Society -- as we present the third annual Hope Civil War Days, April 5-7, 2013.
This year marks the 150th Anniversary of many monumental battles including Chancellorsville, Vicksburg, Gettysburg, Assault on Battery Wagner, and more. The historic Hope Town Square will be transformed into a Spring Encampment for the 27th Indiana. Explore the camp, participate in drills on the Green, learn about soldiers from different periods from throughout history, learn about Morgan's Raiders and just how close they came to reaching our neck of the woods, and meet residents from Hope's past through portrayals detailing life in the 1860s. Plus, you won't want to miss the two performances by the Red Bank ReUnion Band as they perform period music from the actual Hope Cornet Band.
Hope Civil War Days is filled with opportunities to immerse yourself in this special period of American history. The public is invited and encouraged to attend the many events offered.
