Located in Buchanan Town, according to Visit Roanoke, the weekend will include Living History Camps where you can learn more about what life was like in during the Civil War. There’s also Sutler’s Row, a Camp Dance, a period church service, and more. You can find plenty of arts and crafts, antiques, great food, and then there’s a reenactment where you can see General McCausland and his Confederate troops battle for the Raid of the Valley.
The American Civil War is one of the most significant events in US history, and Virginia was one of the major battlegrounds for the war. Richmond served as a capital for the Confederacy for a period, and there’s an incredible array of history around the area. There’s a whole list of events planned for the weekend, so be sure to plan your visit soon.
