Event description

Description

Join us as the 93rd Pennsylvania Regiment, together with other union brigades, band together to battle the Confederate Army in the wide open fields at Union Canal Tunnel Park. This epic skirmish is expected to involve as many as 200 soldiers from not only Pennsylvania but also Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Virginia.

Bring your lawn chair or a blanket to view the battle. As you wait for the battle to begin you are invited to visit our food vendor or take a narrated boat tour through the oldest transportation tunnel in the United States. Plan to spend the day at the park so you can enjoy the battle at 2:00 pm, the Civil War Triathlon at 6:00 pm and the candlelight tour of the camp from 7:30 to 8:45 pm. All this will take place on Saturday, August 26th.

If you miss the battle on Saturday, you will have another opportunity to witness this piece of history on Sunday at 1:30 pm. Narrated boat tours will also be available both Saturday and Sunday between the hours of 12:00 pm and 5:00 pm. Food and civil war memorabilia vendors will be located near the pavilion.

There is no charge to watch the battle or reenactors but there is a charge of $3 per car for parking. We will also be collecting food items to be donated to the Lebanon Rescue Mission. Narrated canal tours are $8 per adult, $4 for students age 6 to 17, and free for children age 5 and under.

No pets will be permitted on the south side of the park during this event. However, feel free to bring your pets to enjoy the north side of the park during this time.
