150th Anniversary Battle of New Market Reenactment

The Civil War Battle of New Market was fought on May 15, 1864 as part of the Valley Campaigns. This battle included two hundred fifty-seven cadets from the Virginia Military Institute, ranging in age from fifteen to twenty-five. The result of this battle was a victory for the Confederate army that forced the Union army out of the Shenandoah Valley.

Now, over a century later, New Market will present its 150th Anniversary Battle of New Market Reenactment, “one of the oldest continual reenactments in the nation.”

“Experience Civil War soldier life as you visit on-going demonstrations and living history presentations prior to and after the battle each day. Walk in history’s footsteps as you explore the sights and sounds of the Civil War with Signal Corps, Artillery, Cavalry, Musket firing, Camp life, Medical Corps, and much more. Enjoy tasty treats from a variety of food vendors and shop for souvenirs on Sutler Row” (Shenandoah at War).
