Breathing life into history: Civil War re-enactors stage weekend of 
 battles at Meadowbrook Farm

  • Today at 12:52PM

Some of what visitors to Meadowbrook Farm this weekend will see isn’t going to be real. The guns and cannons won’t be loaded with anything more than black powder. The red-splotched bandages on soldiers will be red only from paint. Men who fall in battle will, at the cessation of hostilities, stand up, dust themselves off, and head back to camp for a meal and to continue their re-enactment of life during the Civil War. Even the name of the event, the Battle of Snoqualmie, isn’t quite true, since neither Snoqualmie nor the state of Washington belonged to the Union during the war.
