Special Events at Historic Latta Plantation
On Saturday, October 3rd, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and on Sunday, October 4th, 2020, from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., a historic re-enactor group called Piedmont Partisans will be on site.
They will be putting on a living history event, portraying the North Carolina Colonial backwoods militia.
There will be firing demonstrations and an 18th century children’s toy talk, along with the ongoing demonstrations in camp.
