Two Events in Culpeper, Virginia, on March 31

I am excited to invite you to our next American Battlefield Trust Generations Event: Charge and Counter Charge at Cedar Mountain. This family friendly event will take place at the Cedar Mountain Battlefield on Sunday, March 31 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. I hope you can join us!

If you have never attended a Generations event before, you're in for an awesome experience. These events connect younger and older generations by exploring our nation's history at the sites where that history was made. So, bring your son, granddaughter, nephew, or friend and instill a lifelong passion for history with them.

Kids will choose their side, learn how to march like a soldier, try to outmaneuver their opponent, see the Civil War in 3-D, and engage in a safe and fun way of "attacking" the opposing forces. As always, our "Cadet Conference" format employs hands-on activities and stresses teamwork, leadership, ethics and responsibility lessons as the history of this key battle, fought August 9, 1862, near Culpeper, Va., comes to life.

Come share your passion for history at this special event, sponsored by the American Battlefield Trust and the Friends of Cedar Mountain Battlefield. This event is FREE and open to anyone who brings someone from another generation, but space is limited, so please register today.

Questions? Feel free to contact us at education@battlefields.org.

I will also be delivering a "photo extravaganza" presentation at the Culpeper Museum of History that same afternoon March 31 at 2:00 p.m. It will be a lively experience covering all manner of events, people and places around Culpeper. Using then-and-now techniques and by zooming deep into period photographs, I'll go from the Rappahannock to the Rapidan and from Cedar Mountain to Brandy Station as numerous photographers made the Culpeper area one of the most visually recorded of all Civil War places!

The free Generations event takes place March 31 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (but plan to arrive a little early to secure a parking spot and grab uniforms for your kids).  Space is limited, so please register today!
