Harpers Ferry to Re-Enact Civil War Occupied Town

This Saturday and Sunday, July 23/24, Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

This weekend, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park invites visitors to step into a Civil War occupied town for "I Will Follow Them To the Death: Sheridan's Soldiers 1864."

From 11am to 4pm each day, this living history program with the 13th New Jersey military living history group, will demonstrate Union army garrison duties such as: guard mount parade; searching and arresting spies, deserters, and traitors; processing prisoners of war; searching citizens; and maintaining military security in an occupied enemy town. Costumed volunteers and staff will interpret civilian life under harsh military rule.
