Never been to a Civil War Re-enactment?

The full scale battles at Cypress River Ranch include artillery barrages (with ground effects!), cavalry maneuvers, horse drawn field artillery and hundreds of infantry!

Battle re-enactments are loud! For those with sensitive ears, we suggest bringing ear plugs. Pets are not allowed in spectator’s areas! Please leave four legged friends at home.

Your excursion to 1864 is located on a working ranch. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring a blanket or folding chairs. Definitely have a hat or parasol for a protection from the sun!
