Re-enactments return to Beauvoir at the Fall Muster

The air was ablaze with musket fire at Beauvoir Saturday during the 2021 Fall Muster Civil War Re-enactment.

Wearing historically accurate uniforms, re-enactors from all over the Coast held a mock battle to the excitement of hundreds of onlookers that afternoon.

For some, re-enacting these battles is not only a hobby, but a way to keep the memory of fallen soldiers alive.

The Fifth Alabama Regimental Band came out to serenade the crowd and the re-enactors held a moment of silence in memory of Americans who have died of COVID-19.

Even Provost-Marshal Terry Bailey was dressed up for the occasion. “Well, I think we had over 200 re-enactors registered, and just to see this crowd of people out here, it makes my heart feel good just to know people have come out and enjoyed it. And really, the reenactors that come here year in and year out, they’re family.”
