(Victor Valley)– Calico Ghost Town will come alive with Civil War battles, the sounds of bugles, and the thunder of cannon and musket fire on Presidents Day Weekend, Feb. 16 and 17. Calico, in partnership with the American Civil War Society, invites visitors to come and witness historic presentations, troop inspections, artillery demonstrations, military battles, and more.
