Legends by Lanternlight: Remembrances of Rector's Crossroads

  • Mosby Heritage Area Association 1461 Atoka Road Marshall, VA, 20115 United States (map)

Hear the stories of Rector's Crossroads (modern-day Atoka) 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.

Rector's Crossroads saw soldiers passing through it throughout much of the Civil War.  Mosby's Rangers used the crossroads village as a point of rendezvous for approximately half of their raids during the conflict, and it was also here that Mosby officially formed his command.  Come learn these stories and more as part of a lantern-lit tour of this historic village.

Walking is required.  Please dress appropriately.  Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and can be purchased at the door.

For questions, please call (540) 687-5188.
