Balls Bluff Sesquicentennial Reenactment

A weekend with living history displays, weapons demonstrations, battle reenactments, and luminary ceremonies will mark the 150th anniversary of the battle of Balls Bluff in Leesburg, Virginia.  The event, scheduled for October 21-23, is months off, but organizers have posted many details on the event web site.

The reenactor section on the site includes a map of the march to Balls Bluff, over much of the same ground crossed in the battle.  And, yes Dick Stanly, the 13th Mississippi will be represented!  The web site also includes an overview of the battle by historian Jim Morgan.

  1. Looks interesting, Craig. At least they won’t have to march through a shopping mall and fire volleys in the parking lot. I’ll be looking for your pictures and hoping not to see any overweight (or overly clean) farbs.
