Civil War Weekend Kicks Off At Capitol

(WLNS) – There are lots of things to do in mid-Michigan this weekend, one of them will be starting on the Capitol lawn.

It’s been 150 years since the end of the Civil War and a walking tour of Civil War era memorials will start on the Capitol grounds at 6:30 p.m. Friday.

But that’s just the beginning of the Civil War weekend in Lansing.

A tour of Civil War veteran’s graves starts Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Mount Hope Cemetery.

Then on Sunday afternoon there’s a pair of events happening at the state historical museum in downtown Lansing.
