There are always two fronts in any war—the battle front and the home front. Civil War Reenactors will recreate what soldier’s life was like in camp while the ladies hold an Aid Society meeting back home and all at the Rum River Library. Visitors are encouraged to talk with the ladies to learn more about support efforts from the home front as well as talk to the soldiers about the hardships, uniforms, and tools of war carried by soldiers.Library: Rum River Library Map from Mapquest
