Civil War event at Ottawa Sunday

Posted by wlpo on August 30, 2015

   You would get an extensive education of the “Civil War” by visiting the WHL Wallace Memorial event Sunday at Pitstick’s north of Ottawa. This is the second day of the event designed to raise money for the restoration of Dickey Cemetery, where Civil War General Wallace is buried. You can view and experience camp life, battle re-enactment, a field hospital, a Bishop’s debate on slavery, music of the era and more. Admission is $5 or $15 for a family.
