One of the events at Calhoun Days was a re-enactment of a Civil War battle.

The battlefield was alive with gunshots and victims, with few of the Rebs and Yanks left standing, an ominous message about war.

Reenactors from the region came to an encampment at the park for the weekend, delivering action with skirmishes and the firing on cannons, including a nighttime firing.
