It will help if you first read the Historical Battle page, to get an understanding of how the original 1863 battle occurred. And actually there were two large battles, one on October 11, 1863 and the second on November 4, 1863, plus a number of small skirmishes.
The reenactment scenario for the Saturday reenactment will somewhat approximate the action of the 10/11/63 battle.
Union patrol is attacked.
Union outpost & gun section is attacked.
Brisk fight in the 7th Ill Cav camp
Fort's defenders advance battle line

The 2013 reenactment scenario will add a second day's battle that will somewhat approximate the action of the 11/04/63 battle.
