Living History at Civil War Cannon

Interpretive
Living History at Civil War Cannon

Chat with a Civil War living historian at the cannon in Irvine Regional Park!

The volunteer will share the history of the 1853 Howitzer cannon and how it came to be at its current location. Hear recounts of other historical elements found in and around Irvine Regional Park’s long history as California’s first regional park.

The volunteer may take periodic breaks. Check with the Nature Center on future Civil War reenactor visits!

You can find the Civil War living historian located at the cannon and Spanish-American War Veterans monument at the lake, near the snack stand and boat house, between Parking Lots U and T.
