Beauvoir hosts 36th annual Fall Muster

You read about it in history class or maybe watch a movie about the Civil War, but what if you had the opportunity to see a Civil War battle happen right in front of you?

That’s what families found at Beauvoir over the weekend.

The historic home of Jefferson Davis hosted its annual Fall Muster complete with battle reenactments.

Visitors were transported back in time to see how people lived in the 1860s and learn more about Confederate soldiers who fought in the Civil War.

Some of the actors were from other states who came in full costume to help educate everyone on life back then.

Now in its 36th year, Beauvoir plans to continue the tradition for years to come. Commander of Camp 256 Tim Cupit said, “You hear the veterans of foreign wars, that was World War I and World War II, going on in Europe. This was an actual war that was fought here on our home soil and I wanted to know how my family was involved. I try to help and teach others how their families were involved right here on our home soil.”
