This Birthday Party is “Killer!”

Filed under: The strange place called the South,Wars — John Maass @ 3:45 pm

Now, you can experience all of the horrors of war…at your child’s birthday party!  That’s right, have your 8-12 year old celebrate their joyous, fun-filled birthday among the killing and slaughter of the American Civil War.  Just $10 per person at Pamplin Historical Park near Petersburg, Va., site of months of horrific destruction and death in 1864 and 1865.  All you need to do is bring the cake–the park supplies the rest, including a harmonica for each party-goer.  Isn’t that awesome!?!?  What better way to recognize and revere “these honored dead” than to have a hollering bunch of pre-teens eat cake, run around, and play their new harmonicas at the National Museum of the Civil War Soldier?  As the Park says, the exciting experience “lasts two hours,” so come one and come all.
