Civil War : A Living History on American Street

April 12th is the anniversary of the first shots fired in the Battle of Fort Sumter, widely acknowledged as the initial conflict of the American Civil War. On April 12, 2014, living historians and re-enactors will convene in North Philadelphia at the Icebox Project Space to engage the public and reflect upon the significance of the war and its legacy for our neighborhood and beyond. Multiple groups and perspectives will be present, including members from the Philadelphia-based 3rd US Colored Infantry, The 15th New Jersey Volunteers Infantry Co., and the Hampton Legion–Confederate States of America team of The North-South Skirmish Association. The events of the day will be accompanied by a display of historic artifacts and contemporary artworks, including site-specific video projections by Philadelphia artist Rebekah Flake.
