Re-enactors and their battlefield

Stepping back into history on hallowed ground

Cedar Creek: A remembrance

October 10, 1999

The Civil War re-enactment at Cedar Creek, near Middletown, Va., is unusual in that it takes place on the actual 1864 battleground. Proceeds from the event, sponsored by the Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation, go toward the preservation of the site, acquisition of additional land, restoration of 1832 Heater House on the battlefield, and preservation of writings and artifacts relating to the battle. This year's re-enactment marks the 135th anniversary of the battle.
