The military camps will also be open for inspection during the day. Mounted cavalrymen will be parading about on campus and warming up for the afternoon battle. In the morning, the artillery commanders will host a firing demonstration prior to the first battle. At 1:00pm both days of the program, there will be a fashion show in the carriage museum demonstrating the day wear and evening wear worn by both women and men during the 1860s.
