Learn about the Civil War when you join one of the “soldiers” from the Museum of the Confederacy-Appomattox at Holliday Lake State Park Campfire Theater as he talks about life of the common soldier during the War. This outdoor program will involve the audience because they will learn about the soldiers’ equipment and then be “drafted” into the army and taught basic drills that the soldiers had to learn.  This program is free to not only the campers, but also for those who come to the park for just the campfire.
