August

27 - 28 Annual Civil War Reenactment - Once again, Hale Farm & Village hosts its popular Annual Civil War Reenactment weekend with more than 500 reenactors descending on the farm, making this one of the largest Civil War reenactments in Ohio! Reenactors recreate several days in the lives of Union and Confederate battalions, their families and other accompanists. They spend their time preparing meals at campsite, tending to their uniform and weapons, and preparing for their next battle. Each day at 2 PM, the muskets and cannon fire disrupt the tranquility of the north pasture as Hale Farm is transformed into a reenactment battle of one of the most costly and bloody wars in American history. In addition, reenactors spend their time mingling with visitors and sharing information about their lives, clothing, articles of war and what the daily grind was like for a Civil War combatant. President Abraham Lincoln mingles with both troops and visitors alike, and addresses the importance of Ohio's role in the war.
