2019 Waynesboro At War Civil War Weekend
Relive the Civil War era at the annual Waynesboro At War Civil War Weekend on September 14-15, 2019 at the Coyner Springs Park in Waynesboro, Virginia.

Spend Saturday touring the camps, listening to presentations, getting involved in a Town Ball game, and watching drills and skills competitions. And don’t miss the 2 pm battle scenario. Be sure to return by 7pm for 2 hours of Civil War dancing.
On Sunday, start the day with a Civil War era-style camp church service, followed by a memorial service for a Medal of Honor recipient. More skills and drills to be seen, and another 2 pm battle scenario.
