The 14th Annual Civil War Reenactment in Angelica


 Cannon Fire and Muskets on Main Street!

Music, Food, and a Bread Riot!

Angelica, NY......Is a Town Where History Lives’ and no better way to fulfill that motto than to have a reenactment of one of the most significant historical events in this country's existence, The Civil War.  It’s not just about muskets and cannons but an up-close look at what it was like to live in the 1860’s during a time of war.

The Allegheny Highlands Council Boy Scouts of America and the 136th New York Volunteer Infantry “The Ironclads” have teamed up again this year to provide this spectacular event. Reenactors from across the region make camp right on Main Street where they’ll eat, sleep & breath Civil War-era life.  Dressed in period attire, they will battle blue against grey complete with cannons and muskets. The scouts will be camping at the Allegany County Fairgrounds just up the hill from Angelica and observe several skirmish reenactments and then participate in a mock battle of their own, using imitation muskets & gaining valuable insights into Civil War life. In addition, local schools are invited to attend on Friday to talk with and observe the reenactors throughout town.

Our local radio station, WRAQ-LP 92.7 FM, has lined up music performances that will be sure to get your foot tapping and target songs that convey the era of the Civil War.

Food will be available to include Turkey Legs, Chicken BBQ, Polish Sausage, BBQ ribs, Corn on the Cob, Ice Cream, Gravy and Biscuits, Belgian Waffles with Strawberries, Beef on Weck, Pulled Pork, Salt Potatoes, all you can eat Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, and more.

The Angelica Farmer’s Market will be open with fresh produce, honey, flowers, Amish baked goods, crafts and other interesting items.

So please join us, there is plenty to experience, plenty to eat, plenty to enjoy.

Angelica is located in the heart of Allegany County, at Exit 31 of I-86, Southern Tier Expressway.  The Civil War Reenactment in Angelica is supported by many good local businesses and volunteers.  The Allegheny Highlands Council Boy Scouts of America and the 136th New York Volunteer Infantry are the driving force behind the event and provide the key value to guests and visitors.   For more information; email This email address is being protected from spambots.
