The Battle for Decatur

Commemorating Decatur’s 4-day battle in October 1864, this Civil War reenactment is held over the Labor Day weekend (early September) at Point Mallard Park. The free event features more than 200 reenactors representing both northern and southern forces engaging in two battles. A Civil War camp is open to the public with displays of authentic equipment, dress and drills. A guided stroll along Decatur’s Civil War Walking Tour is offered on Saturday afternoon.
