Old Clinton War Days
NEXT WAR DAYS IN 2017
When:  MAY 6-7, 2017

Where:  Old Clinton Historic District

DIRECTIONS:  Clinton is located 12 miles NE of Macon, 1-½ miles SE of Gray, one block west off US Hwy 129.  Click here for map.


Come to Old Clinton and take a step back in time when re-enactors from the Southeast recreate the Battles of Sunshine Church, which took place in July of 1864, and Griswoldville, which took place in November of 1864 during Sherman’s March to the Sea. (Battle at 2:05 each day)

Beneath a windblown battle flag, tents will spring up on grassy fields in the town. Soldiers from grizzled veterans to beardless recruits, both blue and gray, will gather. As in July and November of 1864, the rattle of musketry and the rolling thunder of cannons will shake windows in old homes.

The McCarthy-Pope House, circa 1809, the oldest house existing house in Clinton, will be open for tour. Ladies of the Confederacy will have the house furnished and decorated in the era of the War Between the States. Miss Annie’s Store, which will be set up as an 1800’s mercantile establishment, will also house a display of a wide variety of war relics, a prize winning exhibit of Griswold pistol parts, a beautiful example of a finished Griswold pistol, a Burnside carbine, other war weapons, and authentic Confederate currency.

The 16th Georgia will again sponsor rapid fire as well as ultimate soldier/U.S. & C.S. authenticity contests and unit drill competition this year, and a Ladies Tea will bring back memories of gentler times. The National Naval Civil War Museum in Columbus is to bring a Naval Display/Marine, with replica cannon like those once made in Macon

The entire event takes place in the Old Clinton Historic District, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Self-guided walking tour information will be available, and guided tours are available by pre-reservation.

Crafts of the era will be demonstrated; “modern” arts and crafts will also be available for purchase; and “modern” as well as food of the period will be served.

Saturday’s program will conclude at 8:05 P.M. with the 16th Georgia, Company G, Jackson Rifles, CSA conducting a memorial service in the Old Clinton Cemetery to honor Clinton’s Confederate dead.

May 20-21, 2017

Battle of Resaca Reenactment
Chitwood Road NE, Resaca, GA, 30735
Dates
May 20 - May 21

Overview
The first major battle of the Atlanta Campaign was fought around the tiny village of Resaca on May 14-15, 1864. Over two days, Union and Confederate forces attacked and counter-attacked, with both armies losing approximately 2,800 men.

Georgia's oldest and largest reenactment is located on the historic Chitwood Farm just north of Resaca off Hwy. 41. The reenactment site is one of the few places in the nation that is held on part of an original battlefield, making the action seem very real as one hears the yells, smells the power, and feels the ground sake for the guns. Trains still roll through the site on the same track bed on which the Great Locomotive Chase between the General and Texas occurred in 1862.

See the infantry, full-scale cannons, cavalry, and civilian refugees converge on Resaca. Period sutler and many modern food vendors, serving breakfast, lunch, and supper will be onsite. Enjoy a day or the entire weekend with the family as history comes alive.
