Welcome to The Perryville Civil War Battlefield Website
2013 Perryville Event
Battle of Perryville 151st Commemoration
October 5th and 6th, 2013
This event will primarily focus on the Life of the Civil War Soldier. It will consist of stationary camps (One for Union, One for Confederate) that will emphasize what Civil War Soldier life was like, since, on average, the soldiers in the Civil War were only in battle less than 5 days in each year. The camps will represent some of the semi-permanent camps on the Kentucky Campaign in the weeks before the Battle of Perryville.
