Dear Reenactor,


On behalf of the Hernando Historical Museum Association, Inc. and the North Scout Sertoma Group, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 25th Annual Brooksville Raid Festival.

Thanks to your support and commitment, the Brooksville Raid has grown to be one of the largest events of its type in the state of Florida.  We are working diligently to make this year's event one to remember.


This year's reenactment observes the 142st anniversary of the battle.  The event is to be held January 15th    and 16th , 2005 at the Sand Hill Scout Reservation on State Road 50, west of Brooksville.  Arrangements have been  made with the North Scout Sertoma Group to allow camping from January 12 through January 17th, 2005 (no one will be permitted on the site prior to January 12th).  Meals and hot showers will be available from the North Scout Sertoma Group,   Friday evening through Sunday, for a nominal fee.
