Cambridge Reads Presents A Living History of the Civil War Nov. 5
On Saturday, Nov 5, from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., the Cambridge Public Library, 449 Broadway, will host a living history of the Civil War from one of New England’s largest Civil War re-enactor groups, the 22nd Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry.
The lawn in front of the library will be turned into Camp Cameron (Cambridge’s Civil War barracks) where the re-enactors will portray army life on the march and in the field through first person demonstration, story, song and poetry. The 22nd Massachusetts civilian group will explore the war’s impact on the lives of those on the home front along with women’s volunteer efforts, including the creation of the United States Sanitary Commission.
