Time: 9 a.m.


The Union Mills Homestead

Westminster, MD

Step back in time on the grounds of the Union Mills Homestead for a Civil War Encampment and Living History weekend.

Two days of special events commemorate Civil War history at historic Union Mills, visited by both J.E.B. Stuart’s Cavalry and Sykes’ Union V Corps. Cavalry, Infantry, and Artillery drills, living history, and skirmishes give visitors a front-row view of Civil War military forces and the effect on civilians at the Union Mills Homestead, where both Union and Confederate forces rested before the decisive battle at Gettysburg.

The grounds open Saturday & Sunday at 9:00am.

Admission to the park is $10 a car, which includes all the living history, reenactments, presentations, and walk-through tours of the house and mill.

On Saturday evening from 7pm-9pm, will be holding a Civil War Dance. Period attire is admired, but not required.
