26th Annual Civil War ReenactmentDate:
The 26th Annual Sesquicentennial Civil War Reenactment is an event for the entire family! Held in Keokuk, Iowa - only 15 minutes down the Mississippi River from historic Nauvoo - this yearly event attracts thousands of people from around the country. Along with these Civil War reenactments, your family can enjoy a spectacular time of year in old Nauvoo. This is a great time to walk & bike along the historic pioneer homes and learn about the simpler times of the 1840's. If you travel to Nauvoo from St. Louis, don't forget to stop along Mark Twain's beloved home town of Hannibal, Missouri which has so much to see and do!
