Abraham Lincoln re-enactor at River of Time.
River of Time
Held in Bay City Veterans Memorial Park on
September 25 and 26, this living history event brings the past to
life, from pre-colonial times through the Civil War. More than 600
re-enactors perform in several period encampment sites, marching
fields, and battle re-enactments. Several historic buildings are
open for view. In the Program Tent, the public can listen to and
interact with "first person" re-enactors representing historically
significant figures such as Abraham Lincoln and Mark Twain. The Bay
County Historical Society presents the free event.
