Rowan Museum holds Civil War Camp

During this second annual day camp, campers were mustered into the Union and Confederate Troops and studied the history of the war, especially local history.
They re-lived the life of a soldier through 19th century life skills, cooking and medicine, as well as marches, drills, military maneuvers and much more.
Sites used were the 1854 Museum/old courthouse, Confederate Prison Guard House, 1766 Old Stone House, Hall House, and the National Cemetery.
Campers wore kepis, carried muskets and pistols, along with haversacks full of their provisions.
