Winter on the Home Front: A Civil War Christmas
Travel back in time, and experience the holidays during the Civil War-era. Check out how soldiers prepared food, built winter huts to keep warm, and wrote letters home to loved ones. Visit the historic Vail House to read actual letters from Union troops, and admire the simple, yet elegant, period decorations. Attend an Officer’s Ball, and enjoy fiddle music, dancing, and festive costumes.
