A Civil War Weekend

Sunday, September 15 - 9:00 AM


Waynesboro was an unlikely place at the feet of the Blue Ridge Mountains for war to come. However, in September, 1864, and March, 1865, Union General Sheridan brought the Civil War to town.

Join us in commemorating these historic events and the men who made them happen, September 15, 2019, at Day Two of A Civil War Weekend.


Military reenactors will demonstrate period drill and recreate army life in the field.
Learn how infantrymen fired three rounds per minute.
Experience the ground pounding thunder of a cavalry charge.
Witness firsthand the explosive power of the artillery.

Civil War themed and 21st Century vendors will offer their wares and foodstuffs, while Generals and politicians from the past regale you with their tales.

Camps open at 9 am and battle scenario will be fought at 2 pm.

Come early on Sunday to participate in our 19th Century style church service in the camps at 9:30 am.

Later in the day, join us in for a Service of Remembrance for Medal of Honor recipient Captain George Bliss of the 1st RI Cavalry.

Admission Fee: $5 per day ages over 11
Passes can be bought at the gate or online via our website shown below.
