FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The commemoration of the 155th anniversary of Kentucky’s largest Civil War battle is being held this weekend.

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.

The 1862 battle left more than 7,600 soldiers killed, wounded or missing.
