Gettysburg 155th Anniversary National Reenactment,      Jul  5-8  2018      gettysburgreenactment.com/
Gettysburg  PA

From the first event in 1995, The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee events have always featured some of the best living history at any civil war reenactment. This year a Youth Activities Tent, is being added to the living history smorgasbord. An array of activities at this tent will include enlistment, life and equipment of a young soldier, medical, music, drilling, a civil war art contest and honorable discharge. The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee, in partnership with the Gettysburg Times News In Education initiative, have given complimentary passes to all students K-8 in Adams County in hopes of making American History available to more children.

Besides the new Youth Activities Tent, the always popular Live mortar Fire demonstrations – complete with explosions at the end will take place each day. There will be field demonstrations, a Living History Village and continuous programs in two large Living History Activities Tents that include ladies period dress, civil war music, presentations by the Generals, period religious services and several civil war weddings.

Living History Coordinator Kirk Davis has been leading the living history portion of the annual event for many years and does an excellent job orchestrating one of the best living history programs of any civil war reenactment in the nation.

Battle For Decatur,      Sep  1-2  2018      battlefordecatur.wixsite.com/battlefordecatur
Decatur  AL

The Battle of Decatur was a demonstration conducted from October 26 to October 29, 1864, as part of the Franklin-Nashville Campaign of the American Civil War. Union forces of 3–5,000 men under Brig. Gen. Robert S. Granger prevented the 39,000 men of the Confederate Army of Tennessee under Gen. John B. Hood from crossing the Tennessee River at Decatur, Alabama.

John Bell Hood was marching through northern Alabama on his way to an invasion of Union-held Tennessee. His army had departed northwest from the vicinity of Atlanta, Georgia, in late September 1864, hoping their destruction of Union supply lines would lure Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman's Union army into battle. Sherman pursued Hood as far as Gaylesville, Alabama, but decided to return his army to Atlanta and instead conduct a March to the Sea through Georgia. He gave responsibility for the defense of Tennessee to Maj. Gen. George H. Thomas at Nashville.

Hood departed from Gadsden, Alabama, on October 22, en route to Guntersville, Alabama, where he planned to cross the Tennessee River. When Hood arrived at Decatur on October 26, he found a Federal infantry force of 3,000 to 5,000 men defending an entrenched line that included two forts and 1,600 yards of rifle pits; a much heavier force than Roddey had believed. Two Federal gunboats patrolled the river. On October 27, Hood arranged his army as it arrived to encircle Decatur. The next morning, he sent Confederate skirmishers through a dense fog to a ravine within 800 yards of the main fortifications. At about noon, a Federal regiment drove the skirmishers out of the ravine, capturing 125 men. "With the soldiers hungry and supplies scarce," Hood knew he could not afford the casualties from a full-scale assault and decided to cross the Tennessee River elsewhere. He marched further the west and crossed near Tuscumbia, Alabama, where Muscle Shoals prevented interference by the Federal gunboats. However, he later learned from cavalry Brigadier General Phillip Roddey that crossing place was strongly guarded, while Decatur, forty miles west, was said to be "lightly guarded." Concerned over the possibility of Federal gunboats destroying any pontoon bridge he might deploy, along with the absence of Nathan Bedford Forrest's horseman to bring him intelligence, Hood changed his course to Decatur.
