Huntington Beach Civil War Days

Did you know Huntington Beach’s connection with the Civil War dates all the way back to 1887?

The Grand Army of the Republic, the fraternal organization of Union veterans, held an annual encampment in Huntington Beach for those “old soldiers” in the Southern California area.

Here are some Civil War veterans gathered for an encampment in Huntington Beach in 1913!

This Labor Day weekend come and join us at Huntington Beach Civil War Days in Central Park, Huntington Beach. Two large-scale battles daily, Union and Confederate camps along with a civilian encampment and Sutler Row where you can see examples of life during the Civil War Days from the perspectives of combatant and civilian alike. Demonstrations abound with cannon firings, blacksmithing, medical tents, vendors selling Civil War -related clothing and nick-nacks and of course our mobile photography studio where you can have an authentic tintype or ambrotype taken using the same equipment, materials and techniques used during the Civil War and can have then encased in authentic 19th period frames and photo cases. Admission is free, the setting is beautiful and it's a great time for the whole family!
