Living History at Thoburn's Redoubt

These re-enactors were out in the cold on Saturday at the site of Thoburn's Redoubt. We had a little trouble finding them at first, although I knew approximately where the site was along Bowman's Mill Road. Few onlookers were there; perhaps because it was Thanksgiving weekend and the day was windy. Cedar Creek Battlefield had a few events going on and I chose this one because I've only been to that particular site once before even though it's not far from Strasburg.

These hardy men are part of the 10th Virginia, a unit I've run into before because they are very active participants in history events in the Shenandoah Valley.

  1. An interesting event. Dramatization of historical events is always instructive

  2. Interesting, I love historical reenactments.

  3. Oh how cool you get to see this. I would love to visit here.

  4. We have a lot of historical places in the Shenandoah Valley -- you should come see some of them! The scenery is spectacular!
