Hardtack and Coffee

At Battle of Rivers Bridge State Historic Site

Meet Ranger Russ at the park office to learn how to make immortal bread! That's right, your bread will be edible 150+ years from now! But the fun doesn't end there! While our bread is baking we will build a fire and make coffee Cowboy (and/or girl) style, just like soldiers did during the Civil War! This program is only $10 per person and free for children 10 and younger and anyone wearing period dress or an ultimate outsider Tee-shirt! Availability is limited so call or visit the park to reserve your spot today!
