February 7, 2012

Calling all Civil War junkies! As Occoquan continues to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, a very special event has been planned for February 25, 2012.

The festivities begin at Town Hall at 10:30am when Robert Alton, the author of Strategm 1861, will lecture on the early history of the Civil War in northern Virginia.

At 11:30am, Brady’s Michigan Sharpshooters will reenact the events of February 3, 1862, when Companies H & I of the 3rd Michigan Infantry exchanged fire with Confederate troops drilling in Occoquan under the command of Wade Hampton.
