GOLDEN POND, Ky. (AP) - Visitors to Lane Between The Lakes National Recreation Area this weekend can get a glimpse of life during the Civil War.

The program “Civil War Comes to The Homeplace” is included with paid admission, which is $5 for adults and $3 or less for children, on Saturday. The exhibit lasts from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. CST.

Land Between The Lakes says visitors will be able to walk around the farmstead and see it as it would have appeared after four years of war and learn what life was like for a yeoman farm family in 1864 living under martial law during the war. Civilian soldiers in a Confederate encampment on the farm will tell stories about the war and coping during their service.

Land Between The Lakes manages more than 170,000 acres in western Kentucky and Tennessee.
