  1. Company B Reenactment Weekend

    Company B Reenactment Weekend

    Fort Ridgely State Park
    Fairfax, MN 55332
    Call: (507) 508-2848

    Join Civil War reenactors from Company B, the New Ulm Battery and other groups as they demonstrate what life was like for soldiers during the 1860s. The men will cook their supper over the fire, run musket drills, fire cannons and educate visitors on a typical day at the fort.

    The reenactors arrive Friday night and stay through Sunday, so families are encouraged to stay the weekend and camp at the state park.

    Cost of the program is included with site admission of $6 adults, $5 seniors and college students, $4 veterans/active military and ages 5-17, free age 4 and under and NCHS and MNHS members
