You are invited to the 24th Annual Civil War Encampment Days, when Civil War Reenactors line the streets of downtown McConnelsville in Morgan County. Most activities are open to both reenactors and the general public and provide something for every taste and interest.

Weekend events include a night time cannon firing over the Muskingum River, tours of both the Union & Confederate camps, period church service, a formal ball, several skirmishes on the downtown streets and a reenactment of Mogan’s Raid Scenario on Sunday afternoon. In addition there are lectures, speeches and demonstrations by reenacters that take place on the “battlefields”, the courthouse steps or in the field “hospital”.

All events are free and open to the public as is “Sutler’s Row”, the period marketplace selling reproduction wares and clothing. On hand to beat the heat is plenty of cold and tasty sarsparilla.

Location: The Commons in Downtown McConnelsville, 98 North 10th Street, McConnelsville, OH 43756
