SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. -- Saturday was the Dumont Hill Living History and Reenactment Civil War event.
The "Friends of Dumont Hill" performed a reenactment of the "Battle of Scottsville" that happened 150 years ago.
The organization has done something like it since 2003 to keep the town's history alive.
"Re-enacting teaches history in a way that's not easily forgotten. It really gets the kids into it that might not otherwise have wanted to crack a textbook. And this is what we want to do is call attention to this property. We've managed to preserve it now. It's 68 acres. It's open dawn to dusk -- open to the public for everybody to enjoy," said Matt Pedigo, the president of "Friends of Dumont Hill."
Sunday at Dumont Hill, the park will be open from 9:00 to 3:00 for a period worship service and tactical battle on the hill.
