Monocacy to hold event

By Staff | Jul 1, 2011

FREDERICK, Md. – In September 1862, prior to Antietam, troops were bivouacked on or near Rose Hill Manor in Frederick, Md.

Now, on July 9 and 10 (actual dates of the battle of Monocacy,) the land will again be dotted by tents with gray coats and blue coats and filled with the scent and smoke of campfires and the roar of guns and artillery.

Re-enactors and living historians from across the region will encamp at Rose Hill Manor Park, Frederick, Md., on Saturday, July 9, and Sunday, July 10, as they step back in time to “live the lives” of Civil War soldiers, civilians, and sutlers.

This 7th annual Civil War encampment is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
