Aside from having the amazing Civil War weekend Eckley holds an awesome and even more popular World War II weekend. Everyone gathers to show the public how the village operated during the days of the second world war, and at the end of the day they all gather for a swing dance.
Remember that group of guys that I got to hang with at the Civil War weekend? Well this is where I met them. A young group of reenactors that wanted to bring life to the art. My friend and I spent the days with them and made a bunch of fun images that otherwise would not have happened! They didn't have anything to get into the swing dance with but said "oh well" and had their own fun outside!
