Get in the holiday spirit and learn how Christmas was observed during the Civil War. The program features a Civil War-era Union Santa Claus who will interact with the public, present readings of “The Night Before Christmas,” and visit soldiers in camp. The Museum will be decorated with festive greenery and a Victorian parlor tree. The reconstructed Officers’ Hut is the setting for holiday decorations in camp and soldiers opening Christmas boxes from home. Reenactors will interpret army life in winter camps, and soldier-led tours of the historic fort will be conducted. Children can also make a Christmas card or ornament.
