10th Annual Mid Michigan Civil War Muster

CivilWar20141The American Civil War is coming to Isabella County! Union and Confederate Civil War Reenactors from across the state will meet on September 20 and 21, 2014 in the 10th Annual Mid Michigan Civil War Muster at Isabella County's Deerfield Nature Park, 2425 W. Remus Road. The park is located about 6 miles west of Mt. Pleasant on M-20.

Visitors to Deerfield Nature Park will witness a recreation of our nation's past during one of its most  important and troublesome times. A nominal $6 per vehicle entry fee will allow spectators to be transported back to the time period of 1864. Union and Confederate infantry and artillery camps will be filled with activities. Authentically dressed civilians of the 1860 era will also be participating in the scenes.
