Performers at the Battle of Burnt Corn Creek reenactment fire shots into the air

History came alive at Jenning's Park in Brewton Saturday morning as crowds gathered to observe firsthand the reenactment of the Battle of Burnt Corn Creek. Young and old alike watched the actors take the field to charge head-on in a desperate attempt to lay claim to the coveted land.

The event, hosted by the City of Brewton, was a hands-on experience for children to explore the Native American heritage and culture. The Santa Rosa County Creek Indian Tribe were present for the first time at the event to allow kids to touch artifacts and ask questions about pieces of history.
