Civil War songs featured at Pipestem State Park campfire programs Special campfire event July 4
PIPESTEM, W.Va. – Civil War Campfires at Pipestem State Park combine song and history into an enjoyable evening. “We’ll have campfire on Wednesday, July 4,” said Luke Stevens, park naturalist and Civil War vocalist and musician. Stevens enjoys West Virginia history and the area history in Summers and Mercer counties. His program leads campfire attendees in song as well as through a history timeline as West Virginia became the 35th state in the union.
“The campfire is a setting without amplification,” Stevens explained. “The campfire is the lighting. Songs include Tenting Tonight and Just Before the Battle Mother, with other songs revealing history and lifestyle of the 1860s and of the Civil War raging.”
Civil War Campfires dates at Pipestem Resort also include the Mondays of July 8, 16, 23, 30 and August 6. Campfire programs begin at 7 p.m., are located behind the amphitheater structure, and are about an hour in length. The program is open to the public and without charge.
