Civil War buffs to get fill with re-enactments


June 23, 2010
History will be on display this weekend in Harrison County with the re-enactments of the Battle of Corydon and Morgan's Raid.

The Battle of Corydon, which originally took place July 9, 1863, will be commemorated at Hayswood Nature Reserve on Saturday and Sunday.

A re-enactment of Morgan's Raid will gallop into downtown Corydon on Saturday at noon, just as it did in 1863 with Confederate soldiers pillaging the local shops, homes and buildings.

Other activities will include a lecture on Civil War history by "Abe Lincoln," a ladies tea, a lighthearted military ball, various historic demonstrations and a memorial service for the fallen soldiers.
