The 66th Regiment of the Ohio Volunteer Infantry, Company I, will offer an opportunity to experience Civil War history first hand.
Members of Company I will re-enact a Civil War encampment on the banks of the Copeland Lake and a variety of events planned in Murphy Auditorium throughout the day on Saturday will mark the sesquicentennial of the war between the North and South.
To begin the day with appropriate authenticity, camp inspection will be held at 7 a.m. by Capt. Rob Shick who commands the Ohio 66th. Arms drill will be held at 9 a.m. with a skirmish scheduled for 1 p.m. The living history event will conclude with bayonet drill at 4 p.m.
On display at Murphy Auditorium from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. will be a collection of underground railroad quilts hosted by Gwen Liverette and a display of Civil War era weapons hosted by Dan Carlile.
