The 25th South Carolina Volunteer Infantry will once again hold a re-enactment of the Battle for Rivers' Bridge on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 5-6.

The re-enactment will be held rain or shine on private land, just southeast of Rivers' Bridge State Historic Site, 1744 Confederate Highway, U.S. 641, in Bamberg County.

The event is open to the public 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. General admission is $10 for teens and adults, and $5 for children 12 years of age and younger and seniors 65 and older. Parking is free.

A battle re-enactment will be held at 2 p.m. both days, and camps will be open to spectators, who are encouraged to visit with the soldiers. Other areas of interest include a homestead and garden, where you can visit with civilians dressed in mid-19th-century clothing and view period crafts and demonstrations; Jenny's General Store, where you can purchase items or visit with the proprietors, Mr. and Mrs. Booth; and the Meeting House, where a religious service will be held at 10 a.m. Sunday.

Food will be available for purchase on site. Visitors are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket and wear comfortable shoes as they step back in time to experience history.
