Civil War re-enactors bring history to life in Grand Island
Since the 18th Century the Veterans Home in Grand Island has been caring for the people who served this nation proudly and Saturday with the help of some Civil War re-enactors it celebrated its roots.
The veterans home was established 125 years ago to care for those who serve in the Civil War.
The highlight of the day was the firing of a Springfield rifle and Field Artillery piece for the audience by members of "C Battery Third U.S.
Artillery" Civil War Re-enactors as part of their "Living History" camp which was open to the public.
"For me it's a lot enjoyment when I can see the history come alive for kids and they can finally connect the dots as to why this happened and why that happened and how it happened," said Historian and Re-Enactor Randy Dack.
The celebration of the Veterans Home will conclude tomorrow with an Old Fashioned Worship Service at 9:30 in the morning.
It is free and open to everyone.
