Rate This Event

 

Relive history at the 15th Annual Battle of Charleston Civil War Reenactment & Military Timeline at Legere Farms on April 12-14, 2019 in Johns Island, South Carolina takes a different look at history this year. Canceled for 2019. The Battle of Charleston Reenactment will not only feature the Civil War battle, but this year will bring together the military history of Charleston through the centuries.

Battle of Charleston Civil War Reenactment & Military Timeline

Experience history from the vantage point of Reenactors and living historians throughout a timeline of military encounters. Begin with the rowdy and often illegal doings of local Pirates, then venture into the Revolutionary War period and see how Charleston and its residents were crucial in forming a country. Move on to the Civil War and the fight to control Charleston through the Battle of Bloody Bridge. As a new century dawns we see the devastating effects of the war to end all wars, WWI. Then only a few short years later see the bravery of our fighting forces during WWII. Follow on to the Korean Conflict and the devastating circumstances of the Vietnam War.

The Battle of Charleston Civil War Reenactment provides a venue for our living historians who have some amazing stories to tell. Let them show you their equipment, how they lived, their transportation and how they fought the enemy. What a terrific place to bring your children and let them see history unfold. You may have a family member that lived through one of the eras and he can show you his memories through the setup of our historians.
