SATURDAY, SUNDAY, JAN, 20-21, 2018 10 AM

A re-enactment of the 1864 raid of federal troops into the interior as the Union forces attempted to destroy Confederate salt works. Activities include shopping on Suttler’s Row, Battalion Drills, the Ladies’ Tea, Brooksville Raid Battle Re-enactment, and Sunday at 1:30 is the Grand Review. Suggest bringing a chair for your comfort. The Raid is held the 3rd weekend in January every year. This is the largest Civil War reenactment in Florida with over 1500 reenactors and their families. There will be 28 cannons, 60 horses, and over 50 sutlers. The public is invited to tour, at no additional charge, the authentic confederate and union camps and actually see how they lived and what it was like during the Civil War. We also have kettle corn, old time root beer and you can’t leave without having a FRY BREAD. All animals must be on a leash. Camps open: 9:00am with the Presentation of Colors. Adults, $8.00; Youth age 6 - 12, $4.00; under age 5, free; Boy Scouts in uniform, free. Contact 352-799-0129 / www.brooksvilleraidreenactment.com
