EVENTS – CIVIL WAR RE-ENACTMENTS

This year is the 150th. anniversary of the Civil War. For our sesquicentennial observance of this place in time, we are having “A LIVING HISTORY” at Heritage Square on February 21, 2015,  from noon till 5 p.m. with a Candlelight Tour from 6:30 till 9:00 p.m. At our very own Sandford House, history reveals that Gen. Sherman marched down Dick St. and occupied the Sandford House for a time. Either he or one of his soldiers rode his horse up the front steps and into the house and fired a shot which ricocheted off the marble fireplace mantle. We will have reenactments in the courtyard, with Confederate soldiers camping out and ladies in dresses of 1865. Come see the war hospital, the canons, and Generals Johnston and Hardee meeting to plan strategies. Experience the sights and sounds of life in that era 150 years ago. Adults $10, school children (all ages) $5, and children under 5 free. Several food vendors to satisfy every appetite
