Confederate and Union soldiers are heading back home Sunday Night, after a weekend filled with tough battles at Kearney Park The 20th annual "Civil War Revisited" wrapped up Sunday, after two days of skirmishes between the two armies.

Every year, re-enactors recreate a different battle, but this year, they decided to just demonstrate how the battles typically escalated.

From the beginning skirmishes, to the moment the infantry was sent in to finish up the battles.

Lyn Wheeler, Civil War Reenactor said: "Before each reenactment the colonels get together and they don't really script anything but they just say, this battle the union's going to win, the next battle the confederates are going to win and they leave it up to the troops to maneuver and go that way."

Organizers said the "Civil War Revisited" is so popular they are considering adding another living history event next year. That one would focus more on the history of the Central Valley.
