Civil War Naval Living History at CSS Neuse State Historic Site, 20 and 21 November 2010

Members of several North Carolina reenactment/living history organizations will be demonstrating all aspects of naval life including navigational techniques, daily shipboard living, and other nautical skills. This year’s program will feature Civil War Navy and Marines, as well as the addition to civilian interpretations. There will be other sutlers/craftsmen at the program with items for sale to the general public.

This year’s program will once more offer visitors a RARE OPPORTUNITY - a special artillery firing after dark Saturday. Gates will reopen at 5:45 p.m. and the demonstration will take place at 6:15 p.m. Visitors should bring a flashlight to help them find their way to the demonstration area. This is a SPECTACULAR demonstration on the banks of the Neuse!

  1. Thanks for posting this event announcement, Matthew. I should have done it sooner, but haven't had time. I will be present at this event; it is one that I coordinated when I worked at the CSS Neuse site.
