Daviess County Public Library’s Kentucky Room will host an educational event at Yellow Creek Park on Saturday, April 30.
The area surrounding the Jim Lambert Pioneer Village will be turned into a mid-1800s Civil War-era encampment.
“People can see what life was like during that time,” said Robert Reeves, Event Coordinator. “We will have encampments of Union and Confederate soldiers along with regular citizens.”
“A professional tintype photographer will setup and give a presentation,” he added.
The educational program will run from Noon to 4 p.m. with an introductory speech from an actor portraying Kentucky Governor Simon Buckner.
A reservation is required for the tintype photography, as time slots are limited. But otherwise, the event is free with no registration required.
