Cannonball House brings Macon history back to life
Volunteer Actors at Macon's Cannonball House museum portrayed to small groups of visitors Saturday, what happened at the home on Mulberry Street nearly 150 years ago.
It was the morning of July 30, 1864, when Union Artillery landed in the home's front hallway.
Cannonball House Executive Director Earl Colvin says people can learn a lot about Macon's history, by observing the drama as it happens.
"Cannonball House will soon have experienced 50 years as a historic museum open to the public here in Macon, and we just like sharing the history of the house and the history of Macon with all that might be interested," Colvin said.
Saturday marked the first re-enactment of the incident. Groups were limited to15 people with one show in the morning and two in the afternoon.
