Re-enactors Plan For 155th Battle Of Perryville Anniversary

Posted: Updated:

BOYLE COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) This weekend marks 155 years since the Battle of Perryville was fought in the Civil War and right now re-enactors are setting up for the event. 

Last year's reenactment had about 2,000 participants. This year. they've scaled back a bit.

"This year we have 200 in, so it's a smaller size event, but honestly you get to do and see more," said Perryville Battlefield Park Manager Joni House. 

Organizers say that fewer people on the battlefield will give the audience a better experience.

"The big battle is obviously very cool, but when you get to re-enact and get in will the re-enactors and talk with them and get into their campsites it's actually, I think, a little more educational and fun for people," said House.

There is also a new walking tour called "Ghost of The Battle".

"It is an interactive tour where the audience is actually the ghost following me through what would have been October 8th, 1862 in the middle of the night," said re-enactor John Belisle. 

The park said that they have a limited number of "Ghost of the Battle" tour tickets.

Ticket prices are $10 for general admission, $8 for veterans, $7 for kids 6 & over, and $15 for the "Ghost of the Battle" tour.
