DEARBORN, Mich. -- Six-hundred Civil War re-enactors have come to Greenfield Village for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
The Civil War Remembrance program began yesterday and runs through tomorrow at the village, which is part of the Henry Ford museum complex in Dearborn.
The event is staged to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the start of America's bloodiest conflict.
Greenfield Village says the event includes artillery, cavalry, and infantry demonstrations, as well as a re-creation of funeral customs. There also will be a fashion show.
