RIENZI — The town’s Civil War battle re-enactment and spring festival continues Saturday and Sunday.
Mayor Walter Williams tells The Daily Corinthian (http://bit.ly/11HirZ7 ) that it’s the first time the town has combined the Civil War commemoration with its annual spring festival.
Battle re-enactments are set for 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The festival also runs both days.
The event has been growing in popularity, Williams said, and as many as 90 Civil War re-enactors are expected to participate this year.
The reenactment is under the direction of the 3rd Tennessee Cavalry and 48th Tennessee Infantry organizations, but other re-enactors are welcome.
“It is good for the town and gives the people something to do,” Williams says.
