Civil War Week at Genesee Country Village & Museum

May 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Civil War Week

Wednesday, May 15 – Sunday, May 19 | 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Step into the history of the Civil War

Join us for a week-long program exploring the impacts of the Civil War on the Genesee Valley region in the 1860s! The Civil War changed the social, economic, cultural, and political landscape of the United States in profound ways that continue to impact life today. Guests will explore how the political climate before, during, and after the Civil War relates to our current political experience, the social and cultural impacts of enslavement and racism, and how the Civil War is remembered, commemorated, and continues to shape our cultural and political landscape.

Get hands-on with Civil War history as you explore our 19th-century Village: smell the powder from musket firing demonstrations, engage with costumed interpreters as they craft 19th-century goods, see the fashions of the 1860s up close, and so much more.
