Civil War Fineries - A Visit to the Sutlers at the Brooksville Raid Civil War Reenactment The Brooksville Raid Civil War Reenactment is taking place this weekend at the Sand Hill Scout Reservation off SR 50.  If you didn't go yesterday, you'll have another chance today! And also see my previous post about the Brooksville Raid Reenactment.  Yesterday, mild temperatures brought out big crowds of spectators to walk among the soldier camps, watch the battle as it unfolded across the huge "battlefield" at the Sand Hill Scout Reservation, and browse the sutler tents. Sutlers, merchants to the army, are offering all kind of Civil War era goods from army boots, soldier hats, and things for daily life such as soaps made from lye, dishes, guns, and more.   Among the finer things, one can find han...

What to do and where to go in Hernando County! Experiencing History at the Brooksville Raid Reenactment - January 16th and 17th, 2010 What is a "sutler"? You can find out this January during the 30th Annual Brooksville Raid Reenactment at the Sand Hill Scout Reservation on SR 50.  From camp fires to canon fires, there is something interesting to discover for the whole family.   1500 reenactors, 28 canons, 60 horses, and over 50 trades people will take part in this event that is a demonstration not only of a rather minor Civil War battle but also of life as it was lived by people during the Civil War time.  While the original battle raid according to historians was rather minor, the Brooksville raid reenactment has become one of the largest reenactments in Florida over the years. Visito...

When contemplating a purchase of a home, you may wonder..."what are going to be some expenses I can expect to pay prior to closing on my new home?"Once you find a home that you really feel called to, you will need to make an offer with your real estate professional and you will want it to be considered a "strong offer". I would suggest making an offer with at least a $1000 earnest money deposit. This money will be taken to the title company that the seller usually picks that will handle the closing. It will be held at the title company until the day of closing and goes towards the purchase price of the home.Once the negotiations are complete and you have an "executed contract" you will want to order a home inspection. I really like The Home Team in the Tampa area. They are extremely tho...

Hernando County and Brooksville signed a fire and rescue mutual aid agreement that should improve service to residents and increase efficiency. The county commissioners approved a plan that essentially tears down jurisdictional boundaries and allows the closest crews to respond to the scene while in the past, requests for assistance were done on a case-by-case basis from the scene.Hernando County Real Estate
