Who knew that Florida’s largest Civil War Reenactment was in Brooskville?
Apparently more than 1,500 history buffs, who will be in Hernando County on Jan. 18 and 19 to participate in the event at the 34th Annual Brooksville Raid Reenactment.
Held at the Sand Hill Scout Reservation, you’ll be able to see the battle reenacted (of course), visit "authentic" Confederate and Union camps, and see the wares peddled by more than 60 vendors.
Of course, this entire event is based on the most significant Civil War battle ever fought in Florida. So consider this a chance to learn a lot about our state’s history and – here’s a bonus – see the Ladies Tea, a British tradition adopted by the ladies of the Victorian Era.
During the Civil War, this civilized pastime was used by women as a way to support their troops by making everything from musket balls to bandages.
Admission is $8 adults, $4 for children. For complete details, schedules, and directions, visit Brooksville Raid Enactment.
And have fun!
