brooksville-raidThe Hernando Historical Museum Association, Inc. and North Pinellas County Scout Sertoma Club, Inc. present the 37th Annual Brooksville Raid Reenactment, Jan. 21- 22, 2017 at Sand Hill Scout Reservation. This reenactment is a re-creation of a Civil War battle fought in Hernando County during July, 1864.

The Raid is held the third weekend in January each year and has become the largest Civil War reenactment in Florida, with more 1,500 reenactors and their families. Also, 28 cannons will be used and 60 horses and 50 sutlers (vendors) are expected to participate.

The public is invited to tour, at no additional charge, the authentic Confederate and Union camps and actually see how soldiers lived and what it was like during the Civil War. We expect more than 50 sutlers, so you can purchase any Civil War items you might want. We will also have kettle corn, old time root beer and you can’t leave without having a FRY BREAD. All animals must be on a leash.

Sand Hill Scout Reservation is once again the site of the Annual Brooksville Raid Historic Reenactment. This event will be held on Saturday and Sunday, January 21—22, 2017. Scouts in uniform get a discounted admission rate of $3 each!

If your unit is working the concession during the raid, do no register here! Instead, please contact the Sertoma Club.

Scout camping (troops, crews, teams, posts, and ships only) is available during the 2017 Brooksville Raid, but spaces are limited so register early. Check-in times will be announced. All crews, posts, ships, teams and troops are welcome! Please note: no Cub Scout camping is allowed at this event.
