The Civil War is coming to life at
near Spokane, Washington, May 27th-29th 2017
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, May 26th, 27th, & 28th in 2018.
Join us on Sunday evening at 8:30 pm for a very unique, exciting, and moving Civil War experience! We'll kick things off with a bang in the most awe-inspiring light show on this side of the Mississippi as the valley is shaken and illuminated with artillery fire and flames leap from lines of massed muskets.
Once you've quenched your thirst for explosions, travel time with our guides and take a peek at the somber nightime camps of the armies. Be a fly on a wall at a Civil War field hospital, watching the overworked surgeon attend to his patients; listen in on a conversation between a young soldier and a chaplain; join a soldier at his lonely picket post.
Admission will be $5 per person.
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.

Drop by his studio early to make an appointment, as spaces fill up fast! There is a $10.00 sitting fee that goes toward the cost of your tintype, non-refundable for no shows. Cash and credit cards accepted. Please allow 20 minutes for your portrait. Images can be picked up by the end of the day or sometimes earlier.
Presentation at the pavillion, Saturday, Sunday, 10:30 am.
The Civil War witnessed the first significant use of aerial reconnaissance in Western warfare. Professor Thaddeus Lowe and his daring band of “aeronauts” risked life and limb, going 3 1/2 miles up, in gas balloons, to observe enemy movements. Join living historians from The Museum of Flight in Seattle for a discussion about the Union Army Balloon Corps, its effects on the war, and its implications for the future of warfare.
This is an event of the Washington Civil War Association
