  • Warlike Along the Rapidan

    From the same folks that brought you "Prelude to Invasion", 87th Penn at Sailors Creek, 21st GA at Brawners Farm and many others...

    "It is now sufficiently evident that war is soon to be waged in Virginia again on a Titanic scale." The Liberty Rifles are hosting a fully immersive Soldier Life Experience event in Orange County, VA. We will portray the 13th Virginia Infantry of Pegram's Brigade, Early's Division, Ewell's Second Corps, during the opening days of the Overland Campaign. We will recreate the 13th Virginia to full scale from the top down—9 companies, to match their May 1864 rosters. This event will adhere to STRICT authenticity standards including, but not limited to impression, kit, age, weight, and attitude. All participants are expected to look and act like 1864 soldiers from the Army of Northern Virginia. The focus will be on preparing for and stepping off on the great campaign that all knew was coming, and the minutiae of military life—camping, drilling, cooking, dress parades, inspections, paperwork etc.—a day in the life of a soldier! This event will spare no details and take no shortcuts. Field officers will be mounted, field music will regulate all activities, wagons will come and go, and so on. The details, minutiae, and immersion setting will be the focus of the event, in an effort to recreate the scene as it was in 1864!

                              Does this event need a surgeon? I would really like to volunteer my services.
