Join Us This Weekend For Our Annual Civil War Reenactment
This coming weekend, the village will be transformed into a small Virginia town in 1863 as the Civil War explodes around the village during our annual Civil War Reenactment.
You'll be able to watch as battles rage in the village square and in our open field. There will be cannon fire and mounted cavalry units in battle and military exercises. Soldiers will commandeer the village square and station both Union and Confederate troops in village homes. You can visit both Confederate and Union Camps and experience how daily life in a 19th century village was impacted when armies moved through villages taking over people’s homes and confiscating supplies.
“We strive to set high standards for our reenactment events,” says Director of Special Events, Melanie Neth “All units are vetted and attend by invitation only to give our event the highest level of quality and authenticity.”
Battles to win the War Between the States will be fought daily at noon and 2 pm.
