Civil War CampLooking for something a little different this holiday season? How about joining a Civil War-era Santa at a family fun holiday event that explores how Christmas was observed during the Civil War?

If you’re interested in delving into a little Alexandria VA history and understanding not only Civil War-era military engineering but also how the Christmas holiday was celebrated, you won’t want to miss Christmas in Camp, which will be held Sat Dec 8, 2012 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Fort Ward Museum With a Victoria Christmas tree, period music, refreshments, readings of “The Night Before Christmas”, a patriotic Santa Claus and living-history interpreters, you can also enjoy a tour of the fort, which is the best preserved of the system of Union forts built to protect Washington, D.C. during the Civil War.
