"Our focus this year is on teaching the history of the Civil War period in the Knoxville area," said Judy LaRose Museum Administrator for Ramsey House. There will be reenactors in the Historic Home telling stories of the women who lived through this difficult period, including portions of the journal of Margaret Crozier Ramsey, who told of her suffering and uncertainty during her exile from Knoxville.

Outside, one can witness the daily life of the soldiers, their battles, their weapons, their medical care and many other aspects of the war that both sides had to endure. The Daughters of the Confederacy, Tellico Unit will entertain a Ladies Tea and Fashion Show on Saturday at 11am. The Children of the Confederacy will host period games for all to take part in. There will be period crafts for children sponsored by the East Tennessee Reenactors. Food vendors will be available both days.
