Civil War Re-enactors Staged A Raid On The Old Salt Works.

Posted: Updated:

If you heard gun fire down along Panama City's scenic Beach Drive this weekend don't be alarmed, it was all *friendly* fire.

When Civil War re-enactors staged a raid on the old salt works.

Between 1861 and 1865 confederate soldiers contributed to the war effort by producing salt for use in preserving food for the troops. That got the union's attention, and soldiers raided the salt works all along the gulf coast.
