Norlands Civil War Weekend

October 9 @ 9:00 am - October 10 @ 4:30 pm

The Washburn-Norlands Living History Center in Livermore is hosting its Civil War Living History Weekend on October 9 and 10, 2021.  This family-friendly event features a wide variety of demonstrations, exhibits, and engaging activities remembering the activities of the Civil War. It is co-organized by the 3rd Maine Company A and 15th Alabama Company G to benefit Maine’s premier living history farm and museum.

Union and Confederate military and civilian reenactors from across New England will be camped on the grounds. Walk through the encampments to experience what life was like for soldiers. Cavalry units are also planning to attend. Living historians will scrimmage with replica weaponry and perform drilling and firing demonstrations. The 6th Maine Battery will fire their Parrott Rifle/cannon. A full-scale battle scenario will be staged each day on the hay fields of the Norlands (2:30pm on Saturday and 2pm on Sunday).
