Experience the largest Civil War re-enactment in Wisconsin during two action-filled days at the 29th Annual Wade House Civil War Weekend.

Guests will have a hands-on look at 19th-century battles, military drills, medical care situations, period music, food, demonstrations, educational presentations and more. In a scene reminiscent of what took place during the Civil War, cavalry, artillery and infantry representing both sides of the conflict will conduct demonstrations at 11 AM each day, followed by a full-scale battle at 2 PM.

In between the action, visitors will be able to access the battlefield to get an up-close look at the men, horses and equipment that bring the American Civil War to life including a chance to listen to our nation's 16th president, brought to life by one of America's premier Abraham Lincoln presenters, Fritz Klein, as he shares his concerns about the ferocious fighting, the overall war effort, and the trials to come. Visitors will also be able to explore a soldier's life in camp and learn about military life through hands-on activities in the family area.

Wade House, an 1850s stagecoach inn built to serve traffic along the plank road that connected Fond du Lac and Sheboygan, tells the story of frontier entrepreneur Sylvanus Wade and his family during the Civil War years. In addition to the inn, the historic site includes the recently reconstructed Herrling sawmill, one of the few working, water-powered sawmills of its kind in the nation. Wade House is also home to the Wesley Jung Carriage Museum, which houses the state's largest collection of antique carriages and working wagons.
