KENNEWICK, WA- Mid-Columbia Libraries hosted the Civil War Reenactment Saturday and Sunday to show kids what is was like to be on the battlefield.

The Civil War reenactors have been trying to battle here for years in the Tri-Cities.

“We've been trying to get something started down here for over five years or more,” said reenactor Ronald Evans.

Many reenactors traveled from across the state to battle in Columbia Park.

“When we heard about the library, that was just a foot in the door for us,” said Evans.

Both sides on this battlefield wanted to educate kids.

“I want to make sure respect is not lost because we're not teaching the life of the everyday soldiers during the civil war,” said reenactor Caleb Grove.

The reenactors felt history is not being taught like math or science, and they want to make sure kids still know it is important.

“It allows them to immerse themselves in this culture and lost time that we have,” said Mid-Columbia Libraries' Community Engagement Specialist Elissa Burnley.

After the reenactment, stations were set up explaining more history, showing what the insides of houses were like, and there were women explaining the types of clothing they wore during the civil war.

Mid-Columbia Libraries said they saw nearly 1,500 people visit the Civil War reenactment.  They will showcase their Abraham Lincoln exhibit until September 5th

    The Interior Department is rolling back its plan to increase fees at 17 of the nation's most popular parks.  An interior official says the department is amending the plan following major backlash from the public.  The admission hike would have more than doubled fees during the peak summer season, forcing visitors to pay $70 a car. No word yet on exactly how the rates are being revised.
