Reenactment groups annually participate in Old Clinton War Days, featuring the Battle of Sunshine Church and Griswoldville Battle Reenactments. The event will be May 4-5, 2013, in Old Clinton near Gray, Ga.
On Saturday at twilight, a Candlelight Memorial Service is held at the Clinton United Methodist Church Cemetery. During the service, a lighted candle is held over the grave of each Confederate soldier. At the end of the service, the roll is called, and as each name is softly spoken, the candle for that soldier is reverently blown out.
Food and crafts will be available for purchase.
