4th Rally for Norlands: Civil War Reenactment
Livermore, ME 04253
One of the largest Civil War Reenactments in Maine, this event features a variety of living history demonstrations, exhibits, and engaging activities remembering the activities of the Civil War in the Spring of 1863. It is organized by the 3rd Maine Company A and 15th Alabama Company G to benefit Maine’s oldest living history farm and museum. The 445 acres of rolling hills surrounding the Washburn mansion, library, meeting house, cape house, sap-house, and one-room schoolhouse make Norlands an ideal place to experience the battles once fought in similar communities to the south and the impact of war on the families who remained on the rural home front. Enjoy such as activities as civilian and infantry encampments, battle scenario, field music, sanitary commission with exhibits and crafts, blacksmith, 19th century fashion show, farm-life scenarios, storytelling, town ball game, contra dance, food, and more. Gates open at 9:00 a.m.
