Civil War returns to Wade House this weekend

The 24th Annual Wade House Civil War Weekend will be held Saturday, Sept. 27, and Sunday, Sept. 28, at the Wade House Historic Site, W7965 State 23, Greenbush, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Two full days of Civil War drama unfold in the largest Civil War re-enactment and encampment in Wisconsin. This year’s event will continue to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War.

A full schedule of activities includes two authentic battles re-enacted each day - a skirmish at 11 a.m. and a fullscale battle at 2 p.m. Watch the spectacle of hundreds of soldiers - cavalry, infantry and artillery - as they struggle across the field of conflict. Experience the 1860s clash of arms between North and South as Union and Confederate troops set up camp, conduct drills and offer a variety of demonstrations.

Civilian and women’s issues, a medical field hospital and music of the Civil War era are presented interactively each day, and special hands-on experiences abound.

Expanded food and beverage offerings and an extensive array of Civil War-related items are available for sale on-site.

The Wade House, an 1860s 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.
