BATTLE OF GAINESVILLE:
The 1864 Battle of Gainesville comes alive in two events presented by the Matheson Museum this week. At 6 p.m. Wednesday, the museum hosts a Civil War Symposium featuring discussions about the battle and other topics including enslaved Africans and the plight of women during the war. At 10 a.m. Saturday, a Battle of Gainesville Mini Re-enactment will replicate the skirmish in Sweetwater Park — on the 149th anniversary of the actual battle near the area it actually happened.
Battle of Gainesville events: Symposium at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Mini Re-enactment at 10 a.m. Saturday, Matheson Museum, 513 E. University Ave., and Sweetwater Park, behind the museum. Free.
