Meriden Civil War Encampment. Welcome!

Several area non-profit groups are working to produce Meriden’s Civil War Encampment, a Living History event to honor the 150th anniversary and recognize Meriden’s contribution to the 
war effort by focusing on social, economic and cultural practices during our country’s 
most turbulent time. We plan to have a spirited day filled with varied activities for all ages.
