Harpers Ferry history

Step back in time and witness the Union military occupation of Harpers Ferry in 1864. This weekend, members of the 142nd Pennsylvania Volunteers, a military history group, will demonstrate town life under martial law.

Harpers Ferry suffered constant occupation and action throughout the American Civil War. In August 1864, Harpers Ferry became the launching point for Union Gen. Philip Sheridan's Shenandoah Valley Campaign.

A military camp on Hamilton Street, adjacent to the Shenandoah River, and other programming will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free. Call 304-535-6298.
