CIVIL WAR PROGRAM

CIVIL WAR BATTLE REENACTMENTS

at Fort Tejon State Historical Park

 
 
 
Infantry - Cavalry - Artillery
Watch volunteers present skirmishes and demonstrate the tactics used in the eastern United States during the American Civil War. See troops of the Union and Confederate Armies, all authentically uniformed and equipped. Meet the soldiers & civilians. Tour their camps and see how they lived. Living History presentations include Manual of Arms, Artillery and Field Hospital demonstrations.
 
Sunday battles are at 10:30 AM, 12:00 Noon, and 1:30 PM (Approximately 30-45 minutes each.) Guided tours of the camps are offered between the battles. (There are no public demonstrations on Saturdays.) Arrive at least 30 minutes early to secure a good spot in the spectator area. Bring a blanket or chair if you do not wish to stand. The area is in the sun, so sunscreen and/or hats are recommended. Amateur photography of all kinds is welcomed. Professional film makers should contact the park in advance at (661) 248-6692 to make special arrangements for filming.
 
Directions to the Fort are given on the Map page. Admission fees are listed under "Special Events" on the Pricing page along with park hours. There are no concessions at the park, so bring a picnic lunch and eat under the shade of the oaks. (Water fountains and flush toilets are available and the park is wheelchair accessible.)
 
For more information, contact the webmaster at tejon@forttejon.org or call the park at 661) 248-6692.
