Ft. McAllister State Park celebrates America

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND HILL, GA (WTOC) -

At Fort McAllister State Park in Richmond Hill, plenty of people came out to celebrate America's independence.

People got to take part in war between the states era fun with musket and cannon firings, wheel barrow races and even a historic baseball game.

Those involved in the reinactment said it is more than just putting on a show.

"My ancestor was with the federal forces with the Kirpatrick Calvary and he was in this area right down the road and I also have confederate ancestors so for me it is important to be here today to represent both sides of my family from the commonwealth of Kentucky and in Georgia," Cecil Greenwell said.
