Soldiers have taken over the front lawn of the Mountaineer Military Museum for the weekend.
The museum's first Living History weekend is underway in Weston today.
Civil War re-enactors from both sides of the war are camping out in front of the museum to share their expertise on the war, and to help promote the museum.
Re-enactors said they want to highlight how the troops lived, not just how they fought.
"Really just to show people the life of the soldier and how it was for them, and how they really lived and what they actually went through to survive," said reenactor Jason Studenwalt.
The reenactors will close up shop when the museum closes this weekend, at 4 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.
