OKOLONA, Miss. (AP) — The 151th anniversary of the Battle of Okolona and a planned re-enactment has been put off until March.

The anniversary was to be celebrated Saturday and Sunday. Weather conditions prompted organizers to re-schedule for March 7-8.

The re-enactment will begin at 2 p.m. March 7 at the battlefield off Mississippi Highway 41 west of Okolona.

On March 8, there will be dawn services at First Baptist Church in Okolona. The re-enactment resumes at 2 p.m.
