Every day activities experienced during the Civil War or the life of an American Revolution soldier will come alive at the Northeast Georgia History Center in June.

Kicking off the historical events will be a family day focused on The Revolutionary War Era and Northeast Georgia.

From 1-4 p.m. Sunday, children and families may converse with members of the Sons of the American Revolution and Daughters of the American Revolution and Revolutionary War re-enactors. They may also engage in hands-on activities and interactive exhibits.

Two days later at 7 p.m., local author Vic Williams will speak about his book, “Millikids,” which is based on growing up in New Holland.

Then the history Center will launch its two summer camp sessions. The first session will June 16-20 and the second will be June 23-27. Both camps will run from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the history center at 322 Academy St. in Gainesville.

Campers will engage in hands-on activities representative of the lifestyle experienced by family members on the Northeast Georgia home front during the Civil War.

Enrollment is limited.
