What to know
The Civil War was one of the most trying times in our nation’s history. During Civil War Weekend, visitors will walk the streets of a town touched by the hand of war. We will interpret the many conflicts of the area when Washington was Arkansas's Confederate Capitol. Reenactors from across the region will present living history demonstrations, including combat scenarios, throughout the weekend. Guided tours of the many historic homes and buildings of the town will be available, as well as surrey rides. Contact the park for a detailed program schedule.
