Civil War Reenactment at Walker Tavern

Andrew Norton

This weekend, July 15-16, the historic Walker Tavern near Brooklyn, MI will be home to over 300 Civil War reenactors. Soldiers from the 4th Texas Co. E (based out of Southeastern Michigan) will be performing drills, camping, participating in skirmishes, and reenacting a battle. As far as I can tell from the 4th Texas Co. E website it appears that they will be reenacting part of the "Seige of Petersburg." Here is a rundown of the events for this weekend's Civil War reenactment -
