Pipestone Civil War Days PIPESTONE CIVIL WAR DAYS - CANCELLED ANNOUNCEMENT: The Pipestone Civil War Days Committee has made the difficult decision to discontinue the Civil War Days event in Pipestone, MN. During the 30 years of operation, the Civil War Days committee has engaged the finest historians, educators, and musicians from all across the United states. Visitors were able to be a part of our history and to gain understanding as to what life was like during this terrible conflict in our nation. For as the philosopher George Santayana said, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." We wish to express our appreciation to those re-enactors, artists, sutlers, vendors, sponsors, and the visitors who have participated in our event, and for their support during the last 30 years. We are grateful for the friendships we have formed and for those who have assisted in making Pipestone Civil War Dyas one of the most authentic, educational, and entertaining Civil War re-enactments in the Upper Midwest.
