The Kentucky Department of Parks says the commemoration is set for Oct. 7-8 at the Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site in central Kentucky.

Each year, the park in Boyle commemorates the battle with re-enactments, living history programs, battlefield tours, authors and book signings and period entertainment.
