Fort King George State Historic Site in Darien will have a Debatable Land Autumn Encampment from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12.
In the early 18th century the territory now known as Georgia was one of the most coveted lands in the world. European nations struggled to control the land along the Altamaha River.
During the encampment, visitors will experience the various cultures of people who inhabited the region before the organization of the colony of Georgia in the 1730s.
Re-enactors and living historians from all over the southeast will bring the old fort to life with artillery and musket firing demonstrations, colonial baking and brewing, arts and crafts and lessons about coastal maritime history, 18th century medicine, soldiers’ life skills and Native Americans.
A battle reenactment is scheduled for 2 p.m. For $5, visitors can purchase raffle tickets to win a blunderbuss gun or a powder horn.
Admission to the historic site is $6.50 for adults, $6 for seniors and $4 for children ages 6-18. Children ages 5 and younger are admitted for free.
