Brooksville Raid Reenactment
Saturday, January 21st, 2017
See first hand how the civil war battles were fought and how they lived!
The Hernando Historical Museum Assoc., Inc. and North Pinellas County Scout Sertoma Club, Inc. present the 37th Annual Brooksville Raid Reenactment, Jan. 21, 2017.
This reenactment is a re-creation of a Civil War battle that happened in Hernando County in July of l864.
The Raid has become the largest Civil War reenactment in Florida with over 1500 reenactors and their families. They have 28 cannons, 60 horses, and over 50 sutlers (vendors).
We can 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. They expect around 60 sutlers (Vendors), so you can purchase any Civil War items you might want. They 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.
NO Limit on how many members can go. There is no up front cost, however each car will register for this trip to reserve our parking. You will pay $10 per person cash at the gate for entry.
Please check your calendar to be certain you are going BEFORE you register.
There will be walking on uneven ground, and you may wish to bring a lawn chair (folding chairs can be also be rented at the site).
