On Saturday in Delevan it looked like the year was 1867.
The medical tent was all set up to help wounded soldiers, covered in saws and sharp objects that would look archaic to any surgeon today.
Drums sounded as Confederate and Union soldiers marched down a dirt path. Almost everyone in town in was dressed up, including Glenn Holmes, who helped organize the days events.
"Well I'm a captain in the artillery, light artillery and that's what I'm supposed to be. It got a little hot, so I took my jacket off a few minutes ago.
Glenn Holmes helped organize the day, from soldiers on horseback, to women in hoop skirts, to a visit from Abe Lincoln. He said it's important to remember some of the things that make his home town special.
"The biggest thing is to see the people here and to have history here, living history here that is very important to us. We are very involved with the civil war," he said.
Holmes said he's put a lot into the planning and research of the reenactment. It's rewarding for him to see the old days come to life.
"Oh it's very exciting I've never been so excited in my life," Holmes said.
This is just one of the many events the Delavan is holding to celebrate it's 175th year anniversary. To see upcoming events see the Delavan community calendar.
