The Civil War Center of Texas, a volunteer-run association of Civil War historians, transports onlookers back to the nineteenth century with the sixth-annual Battle for Beaumont Hill Civil War Reenactment at Beaumont Ranch on Saturday, March 10, and Sunday, March 11. Volunteers in period-appropriate garb, such as gray Confederate jackets and neon shutter-shade sunglasses, illustrate the turmoil of battle through a town raid at 11 a.m. and a battle reenactment at 1 p.m. on both days. As the roar of cannons booms throughout the ranch, volunteer conscientious objectors stage living-history demonstrations, educating attendees firsthand on some of the customs of the time. Visitors watch and learn as actors demonstrate such vital nineteenth-century skills as spinning, weaving, quilting, and reciting Shakespearean monologues.

Customer Reviews

We enjoyed out trip there very much. Would have been better if the weather had been better, but we did enjoy it and will probably attend other places.

Thank you for all the volunteers who dedicate their time to show us what it was like during the Civil War. We were amazed with the storefronts that was built for the "town" as well as how knowledgeable the volunteers were. We had a great time sharing this event with our son. Great educational experience!
