Popular Princeton Civil War re-enactment returning this fall

Posted by wlpo on June 4, 2015

After a year hiatus, the “Yanks” and “Rebels” will hit the battlefield again in Princeton.

The “Shadows of the Blue and Gray” returns to City County Park on October 10th and the 11th. Last year’s re-enactment was cancelled after the organizer said it conflicted with national events, so many re-enactors couldn’t make it to Princeton.

Besides battle re-enactments, the civil war celebration also includes a period fashion show, period dance, and a Lincoln look-a-like contest.
