President Lincoln is Coming to Town
2019 Lincoln’s Lebanon & Civil War Re-enactment
Celebrating its eleventh year, Lincoln’s Lebanon & Civil War Re-enactment will be held on September 28-29, 2019. Because this is an admission free event, the Boone County Historical Society (BCHS) is asking for your support to offer a bit of living history to the citizens of Boone County.
Union and Confederate re-enactment soldiers from Indiana, Ohio, and Illinois, together with their families, will be encamped in Lebanon’s Memorial Park to portray life in the 1800’s. Battles with real cannons and muskets will take place both days along with demonstrations of weaving, pottery making, and blacksmithing. A medical doctor and a mortician will also portray their occupations.
We seek our funding through public and private contributions to cover event expenses so everyone, regardless of their economic situation, can enjoy this event. All individuals, businesses, and organizations who contribute will be prominently recognized on either our BCHS website, in our newsletter, on flyers, or on event programs.
To request further information or make a contribution, please contact BCHS at 765-483-9414 or submit your contribution to the address below. BCHS is a 501(c)3 organization, thus all contributions are tax-deductible.
