Civil War Reenactment Press Release

Dear Members & Staff,



You are cordially invited to attend the Civil War Reenactment at the Century Village Museum in Burton, Oh.


This year, May 25th & 26th  we have a special treat! In addition to the Battle Reenactment, Field Hospital, and Encampment, we will be having a special live performance called “John Brown, The Dulcimer Diaries,” a musical production by Treva Offutt and Craig Matis.


The musical, “John Brown, The Dulcimer Diaries,” premiers at the Century Village Museum with performances

recounting the life and death of the Abolitionist John Brown. This Musical is an original composition of

Dulcimer music, song, and live theater, which will be performed on the grounds of an 1800s active Western

Reserve Settlement.


For a gate fee of only $10 for adults, $5 for Children ages 4-10, and free for children ages 3 and under, you will

have access to a full day of activities. This includes tours of many of the 25 historic buildings and exhibits, the

Geauga County Maple Museum, and, of course, the exciting performances of the day.


There will be food and craft vendors; Geauga Highlanders Pipe and Drum Corp will perform, and you can meet

Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln and Jefferson Davis—battle reenactments will be daily between performances.


A Civil War Ball will also be on the evening of May 25th, see details on Eventbrite.


We warmly invite you to join us and witness living history come alive! We always encourage costumed

attendance, as it adds to the immersive experience and makes the event even more enjoyable.
