This weekend, Governor's Island was host to the annual Civil War Weekend—historians portraying various units from the Civil War (including Confederate prisoners, music boys, laundresses, and officer's wives) gave participants a glimpse of what life was like on the island during the bloodiest conflict in America's history. From 1783 through 1966, the island was used as an army post, and during the Civil War it held Confederate prisoners. Click through to check out some photos from Saturday.
