From Annual Andersonville Historic Fair Website:

History comes alive in Andersonville, Georgia the third full weekend in October when hundreds of Civil War reenactors set up camps and stage two realistic mock battles, the first at 3pm Saturday, October 19 and the second at 2 pm Sunday, October 20.

The Andersonville Guild, sponsor of the Andersonville Historic Fair, is proud to announce that H.K. Edgerton will be the grand parade marshal for this years event on October 19 and 20, 2019.

H. K. Edgerton is an Asheville, North Carolina ex-NAACP president that is an activist for Southern Heritage and an African-American member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. His great grandfather was a Confederate soldier. H. K. has carried the Cross of Saint Andrew (Confederate Battle Flag) in 2002 and marched 1,606 miles from Pack Square in Asheville, N. C., to the Texas Supreme Court Building in Austin, Texas, to demand the replacement of two Confederate plaques that had been removed. H. K. has attended NASCAR races where he gave out Confederate Flags in protest and walked thousands of miles with the Confederate Battle Flag to bring the Real Truth of our Heritage to people of all races.

During this years 43rd annual festival, after the parade H.K. Edgerton will be walking the festival grounds giving enlightening talks on African-Americans in the Confederate Army and how Southern Heritage is important to all.

Sutlers selling Civil War uniforms and accouterments, guns, swords, flags and Civil War era civilian clothing add color and interest as do craftsmen such as gunsmiths, blacksmiths, basket makers, quilters, weavers, and artists of all kinds.

Gates open at 10 am both days. Special entertainment includes performances by Dixie Jubilee, the Southern Gunslingers, gospel, blue grass performances, and a period dance on Saturday evening.

The little village of Andersonville reluctantly played a part in Civil War history as supply center for Andersonville Confederate Prison. All 45,000 Union prisoners of war and all supplies for the prison were shipped by rail to the towns depot. The towns Drummer Boy Museum features a diorama of the prison and the town as they were in 1864. Visitors to the Fair can also visit the actual site of the Confederate prison.
