HARVARD -- The town of Harvard will host a living history event on the town common. The 28th Massachusetts Regiment will stage a living history encampment from Friday through Sunday.

The regiment has been performing living history reenactments and encampments for over 30 years, and is currently one of the largest and most experienced living history Civil War regiments in the country. For decades, the 28th has been providing people with an inside look at life for the common Union soldier during the Civil War.

In addition to the encampment, music will be provided on Saturday by "The Hardtacks," a Civil War folk music group.

Harvard Historical society will be offering a Civil War-themed candlelight tour Saturday evening to provide highlights of Harvard's historic cemetery.

The public is welcome to come out to the Harvard Town Common to interact with the 28th Regiment, listen to the music, and take the tour.
