Civil War Reenactment in the Northeastern U.S. 

Pierce Creek 

WELCOME to the largest “all arms” Civil War Reenactment in the Northeastern U.S.

August 8-10, 2008 in Binghamton, New York

Mounted Cavalry – Navy – Marines – Infantry – Artillery – Living History – Music – Sutlers
  New for 2008!
Because our new location has a very large spring-fed pond, Emmy Award-winning History Channel producer Carl Kriegeskotte’s beautiful replica of the Federal steam launch used in the pursuit of the Confederate ironclad C.S.S. Albemarle will be steaming “Lake Pierce” and landing Marine shore parties into the battle in 2008.

Commander W. F. Warley of the Confederate ironclad, CSS Albemarle wrote of Lt. William Barker Cushing’s daring raid and destruction of his gunboat by writing, “… a more gallant thing was not done during the war.”

This magnificent reproduction was seen on The History Channel by 20,000,000 viewers, and now you will be able to see it in person.
