YUMA, ARIZONA – The Colorado River State Historic Park is hosting our 10th annual Civil War Days reenactment weekend on Jan. 26-27, 2019, at the historic Yuma Quartermaster Depot, 201 N. 4th Avenue.
This year’s event features new appearances by Mrs. Mary Todd Lincoln, wife of President Abraham Lincoln, and Mrs. Julia Grant, wife of Lincoln’s top general Ulysses S. Grant. Despite their husbands’ close association, Mrs. Lincoln and Mrs. Grant became social rivals, as will be reflected in their reenactment performances.
