Civil War Reenactment at Rancho de las Golondrinas

The Hacienda Nicholas Bed & Breakfast Inn is a historic adobe home which is especially captivating to history buffs.  This weekend's Civil War Reenactment at Rancho de las Golondrinas will be equally fascinating for lovers of history.  Rancho de las Golondrinas (Ranch of the Swallows) is a living history museum just south of Santa Fe, dating back to the early 1700's.  Along with the annual events such as the Harvest Festival, Wine Festival and Herb & Lavender Fair, the ranch puts on a Civil War Reenactment featuring military drills, living examples of battle zone camp life, educational lectures and demonstrations, as well as actual reenactments of actual Civil War battles that took place in New Mexico.   As 2012 is the 150th anniversary of the state's Civil War battles, the event will be even more elaborate than ever.

Ticket prices are $8 for adults, $5 for seniors and teens.  The event is free for children under age 12.
