The Hernando Historical Museum Assoc., Inc. and North Pinellas County Scout Sertoma Club, Inc. presents the 27th Annual Brooksville Raid Festival, Jan. 20th and 21st, 2007. This festival is a re-creation of a civil war battle that happened in Hernando County in July of l864. It is held the 3rd weekend in January every year. We have become the largest civil war reenactment in Florida with over 3200 reenactors and their families participating in 2006, we also had 32 cannons and 80 horses.

 

The public is invited to tour, at no additional charge, the authentic confederate and union camps and actually see how they lived and what it was like during the civil war. We expect around 60 sutlers (Vendors) so you can purchase any civil war items you might want. We also have kettle corn, old time root beer and you can't leave without having a FRY BREAD. This year we will be hosting a l860's base ball game by the Pinellas Vintage Baseball Team starting at 12:00 on Saturday only.. All animals must be on a leash. You are welcome to bring your own chair, blanket or cooler. Alcohol is not permitted on at the event

 

We also have a ladies tea on Saturday at 11:00 a.m., then our battle at 2:30. At 8:00 p.m. on the raid site you can dance to the Virginia Reel at the Blue/Gray Ball from 8:00-11:00 P.M. to the music of the 97th. Regimental Band. Free admittance to all and you don't have to be in costume. Friday Jan. 19th, 2007, we hold a school day for children for a $l.00 donation.
