Brice’s Crossroads Attack Coming to Historic Daniel Lady Farm

Join us for the first cavalry reenactment hosted by the Historic Daniel Lady Farm. 

The scenario from the war’s Western Theatre will be a reenactment of the battle of Brice’s Crossroads in Mississippi in June of 1864 when a contingent of Confederate cavalry under General Nathan Bedford Forest outflanked a superior Union force.

We're expecting a large turnout for the event! There are already 45 mounted Southern reenactors committed to the event and 25 dismounted troopers. Enlisted Union cavalry currently numbers 20, with 20 dismounted troopers and about 35 infantry. In addition, about 45 living history participants and speakers will be on hand.

The $10 entry fee for people 13 and older includes a tour of the Daniel Lady farmhouse and barn, which were used as a Confederate field hospital during the Battle of Gettysburg. Children 15 and under are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.

This will be a great opportunity for people to get an up-close look at cavalry operations and how the troopers cared and outfitted their mounts. The event is still accepting reenactor registrations. The registration fee of $15 includes a dinner for reenactors Saturday evening.

If interested, please visit www.gbpa.org and use the registration form and payment link to register for this event. For more information, contact info@gbpa.org.
