The three-day event will begin on Friday with a living history day tailored for school children. Bus loads of kids will be coming on Friday to witness the Civil War encampment and to visit the twelve stations that will teach history through tactile learning. Examples of calvary, infantry, horse-drawn artillery and field hospitals will be part of the the Battle for Broxton Bridge Reenactment education day. There is no fee for admission on Friday which runs from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be available.

Saturday and Sunday will include a $10 admission for adults, with the grounds open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Each day at 2 p.m., the Battle for Broxton Bridge Reenactment will be reenacted in what is usually the main draw. What’s interesting is that the battle takes place on the exact same ground where it occurred originally. The Civil War breastworks at Broxton Bridge remain intact and the Salkehatchie Swamp remains a formidable natural formation for anyone to cross.
