Battery B, 1st Rhode Island Light Artillery Regiment will host the Lasdon Park Civil War Soldier Experience

Civil War Soldier Experience
Saturday, Aug. 20 • 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Sunday, Aug. 21 • 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The Friends of Lasdon Park and Arboretum are excited to present this immersive program where children will experience history first-hand. Each 2-hour session will consist of a number of fun-filled, educational activities, demonstrations and ending with the firing of a real civil war cannon.

Children will witness history while learning about the life of civil war soldiers and their families. From the toys and games they played with, to the skills they needed to survive, this program is sure to give children a reason to love history.

Suggested for children ages 7 – 12. This program will be located out of doors, so children will need to come prepared to stay outside during the camp. Participants should bring water, snacks, bug spray, sunscreen, and wear comfortable clothing for outside activities.

All children participating will receive a personalized certificate and Friends of Lasdon embroidered patch.

Saturday, August 20
10 a.m. – 12 noon
1 p.m. – 3 p.m.

Sunday, August 21
10 a.m. – 12 noon
1 p.m. – 3 p.m.

Participation is by registration only, as the program can only accommodate 25 children per session. At the end of each session, each child will receive a personalized certificate of participation as well as an official Lasdon badge.
