The Civil War is coming to life at
near Spokane, Washington, May 28th-30th
Come and see for yourself the most turbulent times our country has ever endured — the Civil War.
Hear the crash and boom of the artillery. Feel the weight of the rifles and packs that the soldiers carried. Meet the fine ladies in their gorgeous dresses. Watch as battles are reenacted, and honor the 700,000 men who died for their beliefs.
All this at the Deep Creek Civil War Reenactment just outside Spokane, WA, this Memorial Day weekend!
On the evenings of May 28th and 29th, join us for a guided Ghosts of our History lantern tour through both the Federal and Confederate camps. On this unique walk, learn about overlooked aspects of the Civil War through vignettes.
We will be meeting in front of the pavilion at 8:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday. Bring a flashlight for the walk back to your vehicle. The fee for attending this entertaining and moving tour is $5 per person, and children under 12 are free.
Are you a pyromaniac, with a thirst for flames and explosions? Just tired of going out on Sunday evening for yet another chic-flick?
Watch the hillsides illuminated with the artillery and see flames leaping from hundreds of muskets in the most awe-inspiring display of exploding black powder on this side of the Mississippi during our Sunday evening lantern walk.
From I-90, take exit 277 for Hwy 2 toward Davenport. Drive 13 miles and turn right onto Deep Creek Road. Drive 2.2 miles and arrive at the event location.
