Dancing was enjoyed by almost everyone in America during the Civil War –North and South, young and old, rich and poor, urban and rural, black and white, and in the camps, the soldiers danced with each other and no one thought it was strange.

In all times of adversity, you have to take a step back from your troubles.During the 1860s, dancing was one way to forget, at least for an evening, the “fiery trial” of the Civil War.
Come join us for an evening camp dance. All ages welcome.
