Visitors to this weekend's Civil War re-enactment in Perryville will have the opportunity to watch three battles.
Two on Saturday and the third on Sunday will offer visitors a glimpse of what occurred at Perryville in 1862.
The Battle of Perryville was the most significant Civil War battle in Kentucky, leaving more than 7,000 casualties.
"Anyone interested in the Civil War or Kentucky history will be interested in attending this event," Parks Commissioner J.T. Miller said. "We have one of the best preserved Civil War battlefields in the country at the Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site, and this will make for a fascinating weekend."
* The first battle will be 7 a.m. Saturday with the Battle of Pottsville. This battle, one of the many skirmishes that occurred before the larger battle at Perryville, will feature cavalry units.
Confederate forces led by General Joseph Wheeler attacked Union advance units and captured 50 rifles. But the Union counterattacked, forced the Confederates to withdraw, and continued marching toward Perryville.
