Civil War Days is one of the major events hosted annually by the HFWC.  It is a re-enactment that we host to bring the life and times of the Civil War to life.  On most weekends, anyone can enter Fort Wayne, walk around and see all the buildings.  However, this event is held to bring the era of the Civil War to life.  Over two days, participants from across Michigan and other Great Lakes states take on the roles of Union soldiers, their Confederate counterparts and the civilians from both sides of this great conflict.  Below are some photos from the 2007 event.  We hope you’ll mark you calendar for the next Civil War Days!  Dates can be found on the events calendar of the website.
