The Yankees and Confederates will be in LaGrange August 8 and 9. The Indiana 44th Regiment will represent the Union and the 50th Regiment will represent the Confederates at an encampment to be staged on county property north of the county library and west of the courthouse.
They will arrive Friday, camp overnight, and the main event will be all day Saturday.
Greg Todd, a spokesman for Focus LaGrange, a co-sponsor of the event, made a presentation before county commissioners Monday morning and received permission to use county property to stage the event.
“There will be speakers, vendors, authors, free admission, a whole day of events,” he said.
