Description:
 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.

This free program is offered in partnership with Anoka County Historical Society and is funded with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Call 763-576-4695 for more information.
