Reenacting Clinton's War Days

Reenacting Clinton's War Days

 

Come to Old Clinton and take a step back in time on May 4 & 5, 2013, when re-enactors from the Southeast recreate the Battles of Sunshine Church and Griswoldville in 1864 during Sherman's March to the Sea.

Beneath a windblown battle flag, tents will spring up on grassy fields in the town. Soldiers from grizzled veterans to beardless recruits, both blue and gray, will gather. As in July and November of 1864, the rattle of musketry and the rolling thunder of cannons will shake windows in old homes.
