Thompsons Station’s antebellum estate Homestead Manor will relive its fateful past March 9, as reenactors and historians from throughout the region assemble to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War battle that occurred there on March 5, 1863.
This living history day put on by the Thompsons Station Economic Development Committee will feature artillery, cavalry and infantry demonstrations, reenacted scenes from the battle, walk-through exhibits including a sutlers camp and battlefield hospital, historian presentations, food and crafts vendors and an evening dance to period music.
This educational event is open to the public and is suitable for school-aged children and older. There is a suggested minimum donation of $1 per adult admission. All donations will be put toward historic preservation efforts in the community.
