Historic Latta Plantation welcomed visitors and reeneactors Saturday for the Tar Heels at Gettysburg Civil War Battle of Gettysburg reenactment.
Clint Johnson, color sergeant of the 26th North Carolina Regiment, said reenactors try to make the battle as accurate as possible with historical records, clothing for the time period and camping out in the woods for the weekend.
“It’s the closest you’re ever going to come to really understanding history,” Johnson said at the Huntersville facility.
The event continues Sunday.
Admission is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors and students and free for children 5-years-old and under.
