Port Austin History Center

1424 Pointe Aux Barques Rd. (One mile east of Port Austin)

Al and Dave Eicher present a fascinating look at Michigan’s role in the Civil War. Drawing on documents and photographs from more than 150 Michigan research centers, they lay out a month-by-month timeline of wartime events in Michigan and on the eastern battlefields. You will hear about historic sites related to Civil War events in Michigan and elsewhere, and true stories about Michigan people in the war. Music and sounds created at re-enactment events bring these stories to life.
