A huge event is taking place in New Bern this weekend and thousands are either participating or watching. It's all part of New Bern's 300th anniversary.
Several hundred Civil War re-enactors participated Saturday to remember March 14th,1862. A day that the Union Army defeated the Confederates.
The re-enactments will go on through Sunday, with many other activities for people and entertainment on the New Bern waterfront all weekend.
