Park Day 2020 at Black Jack
Because of the Covid 19 outbreak, we are postponing our participation in this year's American Battlefield Trust Park Day event scheduled for April 4th. As of now, we do not have a new date for the clean-up, but we will hold it as soon as possible after it becomes safe to do so. We will post the new date here and on our Facebook page when it becomes available.
The people living during the period we are commemorating were facing very stressful times too, but they remained strong and resolute, good examples for us to follow.
Enjoy the beauty of Black Jack Battlefield & Nature Park at any time from dawn to dusk 365 days/year.
We are open for visitors to walk the nature trails, have a picnic lunch at one of our tables or grab a walking tour brochure from the display outside the Robert Hall Pearson Farmstead Home.
Reflect on events in our history that have had and continue to have an impact on our lives today.
Dawn at Black Jack
June 2, 2020
5:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
There will be a special tour of the battlefield on the same date and at the same time that the battle occurred 163 years earlier.
Please arrive no later than 4:45 a.m. and bring a flashlight or lantern.
This event is free and open to the public, and is held annually on the anniversary of the June 2, 1856, battle.
Battle of Black Jack Reenactment Weekend
June 6 and 7, 2020
We are sorry to have to cancel the reenactments of the Battle of Black Jack. We plan to try again next year to have reenactments for the 2021 anniversary. If circumstances were to permit crowds to gather, we will still have a guided tour of the battlefield this year on Saturday, June 6th, but whether this will be possible remains to be seen. We will post any new information here and on our Facebook page.
