The 2013 Battle was a tremendous success. People came from all over to enjoy reenactments, Ladies Tea, Battlefield Ball, great food, music and visiting with friends.
Living History Day: Schools brought their students and gave them an educational experience geared to show what life was like before, during and after the Civil War - this was on Friday the 17th. In 2012, over 500 school children from the surrounding counties who got to experience first hand what it would be like to go back in time. What a phenomenal learning opportunity for the students. This turn out was unbeliveable, given that most of the schools were already out of session for the year.
Battles took place on both Saturday and Sunday along with a Ladies Tea and an evening ball. The towns people and churches laid out a huge spread of food for Saturday's evening meal in which all participants were invited. Displays and demonstrations for the students on Friday provided opportunities all weekend long for visitors and towns people to learn first hand what life was like during the Civil War.
