Reenactment of the Battle of New Market

May 19, 2018 - May 20, 2018

The Virginia Museum of the Civil War  has the distinction of holding the longest, continual reenactment in the United States.  Still held on the original battlefield property in New Market, Virginia, the first event took place in May 1914.

At the reenactment, you will witness hundreds of living historians from around the United States recreating a moment unique in American history and on the actual spot that event took place.

The battle is best known for the heroic role played by young cadets from Virginia Military Institute, the youngest only 15 years old; but valor and bravery knew no age that day. It is their story you will learn during your visit.

Be sure to visit the Virginia Museum of the Civil War and historic Bushong farmstead, or have lunch at the various food vendors or shop at the many Civil War period merchants on site. Your reenactment admission ticket is good for all of the activities that day. Don’t forget to visit the Town of New Market with its many shops, restaurants, and businesses.
