Battle of Hernando Reenactment


Last weekend, the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Hernando reenactment took place in Hernando, Mississippi. The reenactment takes place once every ten years at the Mussacuna Plantation just outside of town.

At last weekend’s reenactment, approximately 3000 people attended during the two-day event. It was a great turnout, and gave people the chance to see what it was like in 1863. Members of the Varina Howell Davis Chapter #2559 United Daughters of the Confederacy, as well as the Samuel A. Hughey Camp Sons of Confederate Veterans, the Bonnie Blue Brigade, the 17th Mississippi Reenactors Group, the DeSoto County Museum, and the Masonic Order helped sponsor the event.
