BANGOR – Union and Confederate soldiers are ready for battle this weekend.
“Drums on the Penobscot” a civil war experience is bringing civil war reenactors to the University of Maine Bangor campus.
The Bangor historical society is hosting the event, which includes two encampments, artillery demonstrations and acted out skirmishes.
The executive director of the Bangor Historical Society Melissa Gerety said, “There’s a very active reenactor community right around here. A lot in the state of Maine because we were so big in the civil war with Twentieth Maine.”
The event gives visitors an inside look at what life was like for soldiers and civilians during the civil war.
It’s free to the public and will be ending on Sunday at 2 PM.
