Rumors had circulated about changes at the event, which draws from 14,000 to 18,000 visitors each year to see a living history re-creation.
Columbus-Belmont Parks Director Cindy Lynch said Monday that she had received many calls of concern about the annual event, but told Thunderbolt News that “Civil War Days will go on as usual.”
At issue was the use of the Confederate Flag during the battlefield skirmishes and encampments at the park.
Gil Lawson, a spokesman for the Kentucky Department of Parks, also told Thunderbolt News that he was “not aware of any issues or proposed change or anything like that” for the Civil War Days.
Lawson said the only thing that was being reviewed was flag items at park gift shops.
This year will mark the 25th anniversary of Civil War Days at Columbus-Belmont, which will take place on the second weekend in October.
