Join us as we step beyond the battlefield and onto the homefront to connect with the people, stories, and ideas that link Genesee Country Village & Museum to America’s greatest conflict – the Civil War. GCV&M’s costumed historic interpreters, tradespeople, and special guests – including Civil War scholars and experts – will present exciting experiences steeped in the details of history relevant to New York State and the Genesee Valley region in the 1860s – and the impacts that continue to reverberate in modern life.
