6th Annual Battle of Temple Junction Civil War Reenactment

Saturday, May 17

Watch all the pageantry,passion and pride of the Civil war come to life right before your eyes at the Battle of Temple Junction.

City of Temple's Parks and Leisure Serices along with the Major Robert M. White Camp #1250, Sons of Confederate Veterans is planning the 6th Annual Civil War Reenactment, The Battle of Temple Junction.

The event kicks off on Friday, May 16 with area school districts participating in living history demonstrations of how soldiers cooked, slept and camped.

Full-scale battles open to the public will be held on Saturday, May 17 and Sunday, May 18 along with military surgeon demonstrations and cavalry competitions.

The Battle of Temple Junction is a fictitious battle, as Temple was not founded until well after the War Between the States. The purpose of the event is to illustrate how a typical battle was fought and how Union and Confederate troops lived and trained during the war. Reenactors will use either period or reproduction weapons, uniforms, and gear.

The reenactment grounds will also have food vendors and period vendors, called Sutlers, who will sell their wares to the reenactors and the general public.
