The Civil War is coming to life at

The Battle of Deep Creek,

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!

Sunday Night special:

Black Powder Light Show and Lantern Walk

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.
