Battle of Cedar Creek at Cedar Creek Battlefield Anniversary
On October 19, 1864, Confederate Lt.Gen. Jubal Early and Union Maj.Gen. Philip Sheridan met in a decisive battle on these fields. CCBF is working to preserve, protect, and make these grounds available to the American public so they can have a glimpse of what transpired on these fields. Come tread the ground and walk in the footsteps of history on one of the Civil War’s most significant battles.
Every year, thousands gather to commemorate the Civil War's largest and final major battle in the Shenandoah Valley outside of Middletown, Virginia. The event is unique in that it takes place on the actual battleground. That, along with the fine fall weather and beautiful setting, combine to make it a favorite for reenactors and spectators alike.
We invite you to join us in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley this fall to step back in time and experience the events that took place on these fields nearly 150 years ago.
All proceeds go towards pursuit of our mission of preserving and interpreting the Cedar Creek battlefield. If you would like to contribute to our ongoing campaign to protect this land for the future, please visit click here.
In addition, during a 2-day reenactment a full-size cannon will use over $200 of black powder, and a horse will consume $25 of feed and hay. If you are interested in helping defray some of the costs associated with the event please visit click here.
