Battle for Decatur reenactment to return to Limestone County

·1 min read

Jul. 22—The annual Battle for Decatur, which was held for 35 years at Point Mallard Park on Labor Day weekend, will return to Limestone County for a second consecutive year.

Last year, the Civil War reenactment, which commemorates the skirmish fought between the Confederate and Union soldiers on the bank of the Tennessee River in 1864, was moved to Lester due to Decatur's coronavirus restrictions.

The 37th annual Battle for Decatur will be Oct. 1-3 at 28868 Easter Ferry Road.

Like previous years, the event will feature battle reenactments, a ladies' tea and a church service. Organizers will set up an area where spectators can practice social distancing while also watching the reenactments.

Typically, 200 reenactors attend the event every year.
