The Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Civil War in Arkansas. The Sesquicentennial will be celebrated between 2011 and 2015 and you are invited to join Historic Washington State Park as we present one of many events scheduled for the upcoming months. Our first special presentation will be "Town in Conflict," a Living History Street Drama.
Become immersed in 1863 and 1864 as Washington townsfolk try to come to grips with this trying time in our nation's history. Become a part of firsthand accounts from politicians, slaves, farmers and others on the critical issues and concerns that the people and the town faced as the Civil War raged on.Step back in time and embark on a unique adventure into not only Washington’s past but the past of the great state of Arkansas. Plan your visit to experience this unique opportunity on one of the select Saturdays in September, October and November. Tours for the special drama will begin at 3 p.m. and tickets may be purchased at the visitor center on the day of presentation.
