This is the 15th year of this event and while the battles are spectacular, you can make a real day of it by visiting the Union and Confederate encampments, taking pictures, visiting the sutler tents (the general stores of the Civil War), and generally observing life as it was during the Civil War. There is a huge food court with moderate prices so you can enjoy lunch or snacks with lots of picnic tables to enjoy your fare and wait for the next battle.
