11:00: Knoxville Holstons vs Cumberland Club of Nashville
2:00: Emmett Machinists of Knoxville vs Cumberland Club of Nashville
Join the fun while experiencing America’s game as it was played in 1864. This free public event is enjoying its 8th season and Historic Ramsey House is proud to be a part of this historic reenactment. The players play by 1864 rules, wear period uniforms and our local Knoxville teams bear the names of actual teams that existed in Knoxville during that time. The Knoxville Holstons and Emmett’s Machinists play other vintage league teams from around the state. The league has been in existence for 7 years and has grown from two teams to 12!

Local food truck Hawg Dawgs will be on site to provide you with delicious eats!
