Living history event at Fredericksburg Battlefield

On Saturday, September 3, 2022, the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Park and local living historians will host an event entailing various aspects of the Civil War. Reenactors depicting soldiers, civilians, and leaders will convey the stories of what happened before, during, and after the Battle of Fredericksburg. Visitors are encouraged to converse with the reenactors or partake in programs led by park rangers at 10:30 and 2:00. Children may complete a free Junior Ranger activity booklet to earn a special patch.

The event will occur from 9:00am – 5:00pm at the Sunken Road and Marye’s Heights, adjacent to the Fredericksburg Battlefield Visitor Center at 1013 Lafayette Boulevard.

Period baseball games and musket firing demonstrations will occur throughout the day (may not be suitable for people or animals sensitive to loud noises).
