The Civil War is coming to life at
Cheney, Washington, May 25th-27th 2019
The Battle of Deep Creek has a new home and a new name just 20 minutes outside Spokane in Cheney, Washington. At this time, many of the event details are subject to change as we adapt to this new location. Thanks for your patience and understanding, we can't wait to see you there!
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 Cheney Civil War Reenactment near Cheney, WA, May 25th, 26th, & 27th in 2019. Tickets may be purchased on-site (see admission details below).
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 $10 per adult and $5 for children under 18. Tickets may be purchased in advance from the tea-tent in Union Camp (look for red, white, and blue buntings), walk-ons accepted. Cash only please.
