Spring Mountain was the scene of the 7th Annual Civil War Days in the Battle Born State. The event is held on the weekend that celebrates the inclusion of Nevada into the Union during the war. The year was 1864, and today historians and buffs get together to relive those times.
The Southern Nevada Living History Association is the sponsor group in southern Nevada, and also holds monthly meetings at the Old Mormon Fort in downtown Las Vegas. Period costumes, a period theatre troupe, artillery demonstrations and mock battles highlight the weekend.
