The battle of Cedar Creek
149th Anniversary Reenactment of the Battle of Cedar Creek - October 19-20, 2013 Every year, thousands gather to commemorate the Civil War's largest and final major battle in the Shenandoah Valley outside of Middletown, Virginia. The event is unique in that it takes place on the actual battleground. That, along with the fine fall weather and beautiful setting, combine to make it a favorite for reenactors and spectators alike. We invite you to join us in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley this fall to step back in time and experience the events that took place on these fields nearly 150 years ago.

Bring your family and friends to this outstanding two-day Civil War event. Immerse yourself in the time and place of the 1860’s when America was at war with itself over state’s rights and basic freedoms.

Plan to come for the day and stay to enjoy the daily battle enactment, outstanding speakers, and watch the living history demonstrations, stroll through the military encampments and see soldier life as it was, learn about the technology of field artillery, meet President Lincoln and his wife, and understand the human sacrifice at the field hospital where the surgeon operates on the wounded. Come back in the evening for a unique experience on our Evening Lantern Tours. Pre-register with the site for this fascinating tour of the encampment areas and meet the soldiers and civilians up close and personal as they demonstrate life during the war. The night will start with a “Rolling Thunder” cannon demonstration so don’t be late~!
