You feel an air of uncertainty surrounding you as distant drums are silenced and the deafening clatter of metal emerges. Soldiers are approaching, blue on one side and gray on the other. Cannon fire echoes in every direction as horse drawn artillery and mounted Calvary weave their way through soldiers. Choking smoke fills the air — swirling and heavy — causing enemies to become as indistinguishable from one another as the day the fighting began. The beautiful countryside, once the land of hopes and dreams, fades into a graveyard of loss and regret.

No, you didn't just fall head-first into your high school history book. You have found yourself in the midst of Civil War Days in Duncans Mills. Embrace the opportunity, see first-hand the struggles of the American Civil War as it plays out right in front of you. Look around, watch as union and confederate soldiers, "sutlers" (merchants), doctors and nurses — both military and civilian — and regular civilians are caught up in the making of history.
