Penwythnos Rhyfel Cartref America yng Ngwaith Haearn Blaenafon

Come and find out about the American Civil War at the Ironworks. While the Iron being was made in Victorian Wales, what was happening when it reached the other side of the ocean in America, using the same Welsh Iron?! Find the Welsh connection in American history.

Union and Confederate military camp & drill displays, living history, firepower demonstrations & skirmishes.

Dewch i ddysgu am Ryfel Cartref America yn y Gwaith Haearn. Wrth i haearn gael ei gynhyrchu yng Nghymru Oes Fictoria, beth oedd yn digwydd i’r un haearn Cymreig ar ôl iddo gyrraedd ochr draw’r cefnfor yn America?! Dewch o hyd i’r cysylltiad Cymreig yn hanes America.
Arddangosfeydd o wersylloedd milwrol ac ymarferion yr Unoliaethwyr a’r Cydffederalwyr, hanes byw, arddangosiadau o rym tanio ac ysgarmesoedd.
