“Battle of Blackjack Grove” to return in February

The Trinity County Chamber of Commerce will host its 2nd annual living history camp, complete with 19th century battles. Feel the ground shake as the cavalry comes charging by; hold your ears as the cannons fire, see the sun glint off the bayonets of the infantry and the swords of the cavalry. On Friday, February 17, will be a Day of Learning for school groups to draw attention to history and romance of the Civil War way of life. Camps will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for school children from across the area on School Day (pre-registration required). On Saturday and Sunday, camps will open to the general public. On Saturday, a parade as well as a skirmish in the square will take place and a 19th Century Ball will be held in the evening. Tickets for the event will go on sale beginning December 10 at Christmas on the Square.
