Civil War Reenactment

Celebrate Georgia Heritage at the Helendorf and attend the Civil War reenactment in Helen Georgia. 

The scenic Chattahoochee serves as the backdrop for this event that features period Sutlers villages, demonstrations, and camps on display. (Sutlers are what we call vendors today and they were an important part of each camp, supplying ammunition, clothing, horse equipment and food.) There will undoubtedly be skirmishes between the Union and Confederate "armies" that will recreate some of the war's most interesting battles so bring your cameras.


For more information on how to participate please contact Al Platt at

 The event will be held at River Park, a short walk from the Helendorf River Inn & Suites, and a short walk from Helen, shops, restaurants and all of Helen's family-friendly attractions.
