2022 Battle Reenactment – Information for Reenactors

Friends of Cedar Mountain Battlefield and event partners are honored to present, on the original ground, Slaughter on the Mountain, the reenactment of the Battle of Cedar Mountain, on August 6-7, 2022 near Culpeper, Virginia.

We are looking forward to this groundbreaking event, which marks the first time since 1987 that a large-scale reenactment depicting unit-specific actions has been held to commemorate the 1862 battle on the actual ground where it occurred. All proceeds go to the preservation and interpretation of the Cedar Mountain Battlefield.
