COLUMBUS, Ky. (AP) - A state park in far western Kentucky is holding a living history program on Saturday in honor of National Trails Day.
Columbus-Belmont State Park is a 160-acre Civil War site. For $2, features will include guided history hikes, encampments with cooking lessons, weapon demonstrations and a "school of the soldier."
The fee includes museum admission and a bottle of water.
Fortifications were built at Columbus-Belmont by Confederate forces and later occupied by the Union.
The park is 36 miles southwest of Paducah on Kentucky 58 and 123/80. A campground is located at the park.
