This year's Railway Festival will again feature "living history" of the Civil War on the lawn of the Manassas Museum. Beginning Friday, June 3, living history exhibitions will begin setting up on the lawn of the Manassas Museum as a part of the larger annual Manassas Heritage Railway Festival. Living historians, authors, and both Union and Confederate re-enactors will be present in camps for public inspection.  Infantry, Artillery and Cavalry drill demonstrations are being planned throughout the day.  Period sutlers vending Civil War memorabilia and provisions will be on site, as well as period music.
