People in Weston had the chance to be transported back in time and watch history come alive.
 
The Mountaineer Military Museum hosted a two-day civil war reenactment. It's all part of the museum's first 'Living History' weekend.
 
Reenactors took to the lawn to perform and promote the museum. Soldiers on both sides of the war were on hand, along with several wartime props.
 
They hope this helps make the public more aware of the soldiers everyday lives in the battlefield. Reeneactors say it's important to them to make sure that these historic moments continue to live on today.
 
"When we do the living history it's really nice because we can teach people about the Civil War and about what we do and why we do it. A lot of people just do not understand why we run around in hot clothes and cook over an open fire all weekend, but it's history," said Ronna Studenwalt, reenactor. 
 
If you would like to pay a visit to the museum or become involved, you can contact them at 304-472-3943.
