Neshaminy 2011
The Battle of Balls Bluff
  Each year the kick off of our reenacting season is at Neshaminy State
  Park along the Delaware River in Bucks County, Pa. Here we assemble
  our camp, sing our tunes and recreate Civil War battle scenes for the
  spectators. 2011 marks the beginning of the Civil War Sesquicentennial
                   150 years ago the war began.  1861 --- 2011
