Old Tucson, The Arizona Sonora Western Heritage Foundation and the Arizona Civil War Council are pleased to present Civil War Days at Old Tucson on Saturday, February 28 and Sunday, March 1. The event will feature a daily flag raising ceremony and presentations by the Arizona Civil War Council, including displays and demonstrations illuminating Arizona’s territorial days and its brief tenure as a Confederate territory.

The Council also will present live demonstrations including the firing of period weapons. This family event includes interaction with guests who may be “recruited” to participate in a march through the streets of Old Tucson!
