Saturday's historic wagon tour and living history demonstration was a great success. Reenactors drove period wagons pulled by mules through the 1000-acre battlefield and shared in a quest
to search for Gen. Nathan Forrest . The tour, which was set on June 10, 1864, included a Confederate re-enactor who drove his wagon with civilain "Refugees" on board, through the battlefied in search of General Forrest.
Living History camps will be set up on Highway 833 at the group use area. Reneactors demonstrated cannon firing, music, campfires, soldier life.
Stations were manned by characters portraying the civilians and soldiers who were present at the Battle of Brice's Crossroads 146 years ago.
With over 1400 acres of the original battlefield preserved, Brice's Crossroads offers events thoughout the year to educate visitors about the Civil War and the role this site played in the final outcome.
