Reenactment recreates Battle at Ft. McAllister

Posted: Updated:

Saturday, visitors came to Fort McAllister for a Civil War reenactment, witnessing what occurred there almost exactly 149 years ago.

More than one hundred volunteers participated in reenacting the battle that was fought on December 13th, 1864 when Major General William T. Sherman's Union forces overwhelmed the small Confederate force at Fort McAllister, resulting in a strategic victory for Sherman.

Battle reenactments have taken place at Fort McAllister for most of the last 20 years and each reenactment is held as close to December 13th as possible.
