Battle of New Market Reenactment: Longstreet’s Corps

WHERE 257 CADETS FROM VMI MADE THE DIFFERENCE
The Virginia Museum of the Civil War, historic Bushong Farm, and self-guided battlefield tour provide many opportunities to reflect upon the Battle of New Market which raged just outside the museum and farm on May 15, 1864.

Allow about two hours to explore the grounds and facilities and remember that your Virginia Museum of the Civil War admission ticket is good for seven days from the date of purchase.
