Civil War re-enactment

Civil War re-enactors will brave the heat Labor Day weekend in authentic wool uniforms to portray the October 1864 Battle of Decatur. The battle, acted out by about 200 local and non-local re-enactors, will feature live horses, cannons, and real gunpowder, and will hold the attention of non-history buffs, said Clay Turner, who organizes the event. Mock battles will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Point Mallard Park. Camps are open to public at 9 a.m. each day. Drills and weapons demonstrations, a guided Civil War walking tour beginning at the Old State Bank, a military-style ball with Civil War Era Music, and a ladies tea are some of the activities the public is also invited to attend.
