Civil War Re-enactments At Gibson Ranch Park
It’s been more than 150 years since one of the most important events in American History, the Civil War. And for more than 15 years, Gibson Ranch Park and the National Civil War Association have been proud to host one of the foremost Civil War re-enactments in the nation. Thousands of history buffs and students of the Story of America gather at the park every year to commemorate this solemn, yet intense, moment from our nation’s past.

Epic Battles Right Before Your Eyes
When most people think of the Civil War they imagine famous battlefield scenes when the North fought the South over the future of the Union. Explosions of smoke blast over the countryside as brave young men yell “charge!” against their opponents. The hundreds of dedicated re-enactors who come to this yearly festival turn that imagination into a reality, with highly authentic period uniforms and weapons, including working cannons. You can watch as the soldiers and their horses simulate real battles in an exciting, fast-paced show.
