Listen to those who lived during our Civil War: President Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln, Generals Armstrong Custer (Little Big Horn), Lew Wallace (Ben-Hur) and Cincinnati's Civil War Mayor Hatch. Enjoy Civil War music. Attend a Civil War fashion show. Touch the petting zoo animals, get your child’s face painted and enjoy the food and beverages. Amaze yourself with the boom from cannons, visit a Civil War medical complex, then walk the one of the last remaining fortifications that protected greater Cincinnati during the Civil War. Visit our Museum featuring local history and artifacts from the Civil War, including a “life mask” molded from President Lincoln’s face, weapons, documents and exhibits on Morgan’s 1863 raid through Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and West Virginia.
