6th Annual Battle of Temple Junction Civil War Reenactment

Saturday, May 17

City of Temple's Parks and Leisure Services 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 16th with area school districts participating in living history demonstrations of how soldiers cooked, slept and camped. Full-scale battles will be held on Saturday and Sunday, 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 sale their wares to the reenactors and the general public.
