The 2016 "Battles for the Armory" will begin with our School Day Living History Encampment on Thursday November 10th. (see School Day Encampment page for complete details). Battles will be fought at 2:00pm Saturday and Sunday Nov. 12th and 13th. Other attractions include, working blacksmith shop, carriage rides over the plantation, period foods, crafts, and modern concession stands, and vendors, and our usual large Sutler's Village providing unique shopping opportunities for WBTS items for reenactors and the general public. Gates open to public at 9:00am.
Historic Gibson's View Plantation provides expansive open fields well suited to cavalry, with camping areas that have piped water and shower facilities. Modern camping available with water, but no hook-ups. If the Lord provides water, we will provide hay for cavalry horses. We will make every effort to have hay available if possible.
Battles for the Armory is sponsored by the "Tallassee Armory Guards" SCV Camp 1921 and is hosted by the 53rd Alabama Cavalry.
