Patriotic War of 1812 battle reenactment
On 3 September the Mogilev District central club system showed a reconstruction of the legendary battle of the Patriotic War of 1812 near Saltanovka. More than 100 people took part in the performance. They recreated those events as realistically as possible: the battle of the Russian and French armies was held on the lakeside with cannons, cavalry and saber duels.
The plot of the reconstruction was based on the love story of a beautiful young lady and a brave young man of a noble family.
