Neshaminy Civil War Reenactment 2015 *Warning Photo Heavy!*

The Neshaminy Reenactment is a fantastic first reenactment of the summer event. Some people do not like it because it is surrounded by modern conveniences and is not a real battlefield.  Although it is not the site of any Civil War battle and is in a state park, its negatives are also its positives. The fact that it is a state park means the event attracts many people who wouldn't otherwise be interested. It also has the attractive price tag of absolutely free for spectators.

The park itself is not devoid of history. The park is located at the intersection of Neshaminy Creek and the Delaware River. Neshaminy is a Lenni-Lenape word thought to mean "place where we drink twice" and "Neshaminy Creek" was the title of a song published in 1860s in Godey's Lady's Book. Dunksferry Road at the edge of the park is also one of the oldest roads in PA, being built in 1679 to allow access to the ferry there. 

Without further ado. Highlights from the event:

  1. Loved the photos! It really looks like a great event - - and such a fine turn out of military!
    There was no Civil War battle fought here in Michigan, but we still have reenactments nonetheless, and they look pretty darn authentic. So to those who have nothing good to say about that needn't show up, right?
    Thanks for posting.

  2. Thanks! I guess you're right about Michigan and reenactments where the war wasn't. After all, people reenact ACW in England.
