On the third weekend in October, History comes alive in Andersonville. Georgia. Hundreds of Civil War reenactors set up camps and stage two realistic mock battles, the first at 3 pm Saturday and the second at 2 pm Sunday.
Sutlers selling Civil War uniforms and accouterments, guns, swords, flags, and Civil War-era civilian clothing add color and interest as do craftsmen such as gunsmiths, blacksmiths, basket makers, quilters, weavers, and artists of all kinds.
Gates open at 10 am both days. The first big activity is the parade on the main street, Saturday at 11 a.m.
Special entertainment includes performances by The Southern Gunslingers, puppet shows, line dancing, clogging, bluegrass band performances, and gospel singing.
Admission is $5.00 for Adults, $3.00 for Students with student ID and Children 8 and under are free when accompanied by an adult.
No aggressive dogs allowed. Dogs must be under 25 pounds and leashed.
