Legends by Lanternlight: Remembrances of Brentsville

  • Brentsville Courthouse Historic Centre 12229 Bristow Road Bristow, VA, 20136 United States (map)

Hear the stories of Brentsville from the perspective of the people who lived and passed through here during the Civil War.  The program will be led by the costumed interpreters of the Mosby Heritage Area Interpretive Group. The county seat for Prince William County during the Civil War, Brentsville saw soldiers passing through it throughout much of the Civil War.  Confederates used the village as a point of mustering point at the beginning of the war before Union soldiers occupied the area from 1862-1865.  The community even witnessed a few minor, but deadly battles.  Come learn these stories and more as part of a lantern-lit tour of this historic village.

Walking is required.  Please dress appropriately. This program is FREE.
