Living history will be on display this coming Saturday at the Confederate Reunion Grounds, between Mexia and Groesbeck, where the Civil War re-enactment will be held. Hundreds of actors and history buffs of all ages are expected to converge on the location, many spending the night in natural cotton tents like those used in the 1860s, cooking their meals over campfi res in Dutch ovens and metal pans and wearing period-authentic apparel.
