A day-long celebration of the music of the Civil War Era.

The Band of the California Battalion, a recreation of a Union Brass Band, will play some of the great martial music of the Civil War, from Battle Hymn of the Republic to Dixie, while Sausage Grinder, a local country blues band, performs songs that kept soldiers entertained around the campfire.  Visit Crossroads West Cafe for a plate of BBQ and explore Empire and Liberty, an exhibition that will change the way you look at - and listen to - the Civil War.

Attendees are encouraged to dress in period dress or uniform. No firearms or weapons, including replicas, are permitted on site.
