Christmas during the Civil War, Nov 27-30
The Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site will open the exhibit Christmas during the Civil War which will run from November 27 to January 2. Park Manager Bryan Bush will give a 45 minute lecture on the Christmas traditions before the Civil War and during the Civil War. The Civil War solidified the traditions that we know today, such as the Christmas tree, Christmas cards, Christmas carols, and the most important of all traditions: Santa Claus. Cost for the lecture is $5.00 for adults, $4.50 for seniors and veterans and $3.00 for children
