Legends by Lanternlight: "Like a Horrid Dream," Middleburg's Civil War

  • Middleburg Baptist Church 209 East Federal Street Middleburg, VA, 20117 United States

Halfway between Winchester and Alexandria along the busy Ashby's Gap Turnpike, the Civil War was no stranger to Middleburg.  Armies passed through town, soldiers fought around it, slaves ran from it, and the town became the unofficial epicenter of Mosby's Confederacy.

Join the costumed interpreters of the Mosby Heritage Area Interpretive Group for a lantern-lit walking tour of historic downtown Middleburg.  See the places where the Civil War played out in the town's historic landscape, and hear about the town's dreadful experience in the time immediately before, during, and after the Civil War.

The walking tour will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Middleburg Baptist Church, 209 East Federal Street, Middleburg, VA.  Please dress for the weather; appropriate walking shoes are suggested.  

Tickets can only be purchased at the door of the program, and they are $10 for adults and $5 for students.  For more information, email kpawlak@mosbyheritagearea.org or call (540) 687-5188.
