Whether you are a descendant of one of Mosby's Rangers or not, come to this year's Descendant Reunion, being held at the Middleburg Academy on June 10-11, 2017. Saturday will feature several speakers and programs, mixed in with lunch and a showing of several episodes of the 1957 television show Gray Ghost, accompanied by the commentary of several Mosby historians.
There will also be a reception at the Caleb Rector House, MHAA headquarters and birthplace of the 43rd Battalion of Virginia Cavalry on June 10, 1863. Participants are also invited to an evening program at Mount Zion Church, 40309 John Mosby Highway, Aldie, VA, a site very familiar to Mosby and his men.
Sunday's program kicks off at 10:00 a.m. at the Caleb Rector House, 1461 Atoka Road, Marshall, VA 20115. It will feature a car caravan tour of several Mosby sites not usually open to the public, including Mosby safehouses Highfield and Belle Grove, followed by a tour of Mount Bleak at Sky Meadows State Park. The tour will conclude by lunchtime.
Tickets can be purchased below for the program. Attending the Reunion itself on Saturday and the reception at the Caleb Rector House costs $50 per person; $15 will be charged for the Mt. Zion Church evening program (if you wish to come); and the caravan tour's cost on Sunday is $10 per person. If attending the event, the Mt. Zion Church and caravan tour parts of the program are optional.
