Yankees in Falmouth!

Location: Falmouth
Moncure Conway House
305 King Street
Falmouth, VA 22405
www.Virginia.org

Return to the historic port of Falmouth for the second annual "Yankees in Falmouth!" living history event (and Confederates too!). The 2nd US Sharpshooters and 14th Brooklyn Chasseurs were first to enter Falmouth on April 18th, 1862. Learn the story of what they encountered when they marched into this very town nearly 150 years ago. Also, 7th Michigan Infantry reenactors will help unveil a historic marker at the Union Church where they had war-time winter quarters. Activities include an encampment, firing demonstrations, evening campfire stories, Civil War artifacts, and the reading of actual soldiers' letters from Falmouth. Self-guided walking tours are available of the historic sites in Falmouth (some private residences not open to the public), including the historic Moncure Conway House (only open for special occasions).

Date: 2009-09-19 - 2009-09-20
Hours: 9am - 3pm
