History often repeats itself, which is why most generals consider accounts of 19th-century battles to be spoilers and studiously avoid them. Ruin future surprises by acquiring past knowledge with today's Groupon: for $10, you get admission for two adults to Civil War Revisited from the Fresno Historical Society (a $20 value), held October 22–23 in Kearney Park.

Hundreds of reenactors from several western states descend on Kearney Park for a living-history lesson that commemorates the 150th anniversary of the civil war. Wander through a civilian town and military encampments housing battle-weary soldiers as live music from the period drifts through the air and artisans craft non-anachronistic wares. Time-traveling visitors may stumble upon Abraham Lincoln for a chat about emancipation or about how he plans to decorate his beard for Halloween as a collection of stagecoaches gleams in the sun nearby.

Pulse-raising battle reenactments give viewers an up-close glimpse of the strategies and sacrifices made by each regiment, and a field hospital allows for a lesson in 19th-century battle-side medical strategies. Battles take place at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturday and at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Sunday; check the schedule for other activities, including a meeting with the generals, a game of rounders, and a tutorial on building period-accurate flux capacitors. Although additional admissions are not included with this Groupon, children's tickets are available for $5 each.
