Civil War Days at Columbus Belmont begin Friday Oct. 7

Columbus Belmont Park at the far western end of Kentucky will once again echo to cannon and bugle blasts as the annual recreation of a battle fought across the Mississippi between the forces of U. S. Grant and General Leonidas Polk.

Beginning Friday evening, October 7, 2016, with a sunset cannon salute over the Mississippi, the three day event will conclude with a final skirmish between Union and Confederate forces. Battles will be fought on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

The events include a ball, morning worship service, and a first time visit from Kentucky's Historymobile.

Food vendors will be on hand with traditional treats - fried pies and West Kentucky barbecue. Sutlers will offer costumes, jewelry and other traditional necessaries for the period.

It's a trip back in time for the whole family on fall break. The Civil War Museum on the grounds of the Park will be open throughout the weekend.
