Posted on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 at 10:37 am

Saturday and Sunday marks the 21th Annual Battle at Narcoossee Mill War Between the States battle enactment. Everyone is invited out to enjoy the viewing of the battle, shop the wares of period merchants known as “sutlers,” visit authentic military camps and hear live performances of authentic music of the Civil War era and other activities as they step back in time to 1864.

Through the generous support of Osceola County, the Jacob Summerlin Camp, SCV1516 has been bringing this great annual event to Chisholm Park for most of its 21 years, as well as the Friday Education Day events for school children. The Ralph V. Chisholm Park is on the eastern shores of East Lake Tohopekaliga at 4700 Chisholm Park Trail, just off Narcoossee Road (State Road-15) between U.S. Highway192 and State Road 417.

Parking is still free, and portions of Osceola County’s premier park will still be open to the public free of charge. However, to view any of the battle-related areas and activities, cost is $7 per adult, $5 per child (age 5 to 11).

The battle commences at 2 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday, but come any time after 10 a.m. to see and enjoy all this annual event has to offer.
