2019

Thank you to all of the guests, reenactors, sponsors and friends who made our 30th Year
a success

Presented by the Fresno Historical Society in partnership with the American Civil War Association

On October 19th & 20th of 2019, Kearney Park was transformed for the 30th year of Civil War Revisited, the largest signature event of its kind west of the Mississippi.  All proceeds benefited the Fresno Historical Society.  Hundreds of reenactors, period craftspersons and actors portraying historical figures came together to create a living history that was both educational and entertaining.  Over the course of the event, the grounds of Kearney Park became the America of the 1860s with Confederate and Union campsites, a battlefield, a civilian town with sutlers selling wares, artisans performing engaging demonstrations and a variety of food stands available to feed hungry visitors.
