Mark your calendars for the 38th annual civil war reenactment of the Brooksville Raid coming in January 2018. 

Reenactors from all across the country will once again come to the Sand Hill Scout Reservation in Brooksville for a two day event.  There will be food, music, demonstrations, pony rides for the kids and more.

Each day, there will be a battle reenactment in the afternoon. Spectator crowds typically gather hours before to get a good viewing spot, chair rentals are available.  Before and after the battle, visitors can take a walk through the camps for a glimpse of what it life was like in a soldier's camp. And if you enjoy shopping, the sutler tents - tradespeople of the time - offer anything the heart desired during the civil war period.

Silvia,

Like many commenters I had no idea that Florida was a place where Civil War reenactment happen.  This is what I love about AR.  I always learn something new. A

Wayne Martin you are right, there are sometimes several hundred reenactors plus all the support people bringing history to life. For many it's a family thing. 

Nina Hollander yes, there are several others throughout the state. 

Myrl Jeffcoat it sure is and every year it's a little different. 

Patricia Feager thank you, that is very true. Especially by visiting the "camps", one can learn a lot about life along and off the battle field during that period of time.

Beth Atalay there is another one that takes place in Dade City which would be even closer to you!
Brad Thomsen yes, the Brooksville Raid was about supplies for the troops and the confederates landed at the small port of Bayport (which is now nothing but a fishing dock and boat launch). There is a lot of history everywhere, we just have to look around and see and learn. 

Grant Schneider yes, they are definitely dedicated and for some it's something the whole family gets involved with. 

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty When I first moved here and learned about the reenactment I had mixed feelings about it. After I went for the first time, I was hooked. It's about learning about and from  history. How can you avoid history's mistakes if you constantly try to rewrite or destroy it?

Brian England much better indeed!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel there are several other places in Florida where they do have reenactments although I've only been to this one thus far. 

Rebecca Gaujot as long as it's dry, it'll be fine. One year, it had to be cancelled half way through because of heavy rains and wind. Most years, the weather has cooperated and I hope this will be the case this year as well. As you can see on the photo, last year, people showed up in T-Shirts and shorts. 

Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert thank you, I love watching the action!

Joan Cox when I first moved here and heard about it, I didn't think I would like it but it turned out that I have hardly missed one ever since!

Roy Kelley we always plan on being there at least on one of the days. We enjoy talking to the reenactors and sutlers (store owners).
