Reenactment Station Curriculum

Dear Teachers and Friends,

You and your students are invited to attend the 16th annual Living History/Education Day at Broxton Bridge Plantation on Friday, March 3rd, beginning at 9:00 am. Do not miss this FREE fun and hands-on way for your students to learn about life during the 1800s while also satisfying the SC standards.

This event will be held at the earthworks built in 1865 by Confederate forces defending the Salkehatchie River from Federal forces. Students will be able to see the cannons and soldiers in the fort as they would have been in Feb. 1865. Among the many learning stations may be a Revolutionary War era camp, Indian culture and artifacts, a display of firearms and weapons from the 1800s, cavalrymen and their horses, blacksmithing, demonstrations of loading and FIRING of Civil War era cannons and much more.

It is free to all school students, teachers and chaperones. Reservations are required as space is limited. All students attending will be given a free pass to the re-enactment on the day of their choice (Saturday or Sunday at 2:00 pm). You may bring bag lunches for your students or food is available for sale at our Concessions (chicken strips, fries, hamburgers, hotdogs etc.).

Salt Ketchers Chapter #6 Order of the Confederate Rose, a non-profit organization, sponsors this event. The hosts are Battery C, 32 Georgia Regiment Co D Burke Sharpshooters.

The Battle for Broxton Bridge will be held Saturday and Sunday, March 4th and 5th. Camps are open from 9 am – 4 pm. Broxton Bridge Plantation is conveniently located on Highway 601 S. between Ehrhardt and Hampton, 11 miles from Hampton. You may also view an interactive map here on our site.
