Visit an authentic Civil War camp on the downtown Corydon square and see how soldiers lived, worked, and played! The Ohio Valley Civil War Association will be encamped on the downtown square and provide demonstrations on marching, rifle firing, cooking, and cannon loading and firing.

Rifle and cannon firing demonstrations are at 11 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm on Saturday. This event is entirely free and open to the public! While you are there, take a tour of Indiana's first State Capitol building, constructed in 1816. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Corydon, Indiana's only Civil War battle.
