History comes alive in Andersonville the first weekend in October when hundreds of Civil War reenactors set up camps and stage two realistic mock battles, the first at 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013, and the second at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6, 2013. Sutlers selling Civil War uniforms and accoutrements and Civil War-era civilian clothing add color and interest, as do craftsmen such as blacksmiths, basket makers, quilters, weavers, and artists of all kinds. Gates open at 10 a.m. both days.
The first big activity is the 80-unit parade on the main street on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013, 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 $4 for adults, $1.50 for children 12 and under. No animals over 20 pounds are allowed, and all animals must be on leashes. For more information, call 229-924-2558 or visit http://andersonvillegeorgia.info.
