Notice to Mounted Historic Reenactors

The young soldiers like these struck fear in the hearts of their enemies!

Reenactors camp inside the fort with their cannons and tents on the original breastworks.

This forgotten Union earthwork comes to life as Veteran Civil War reenactors describe the life of the soldier, the art of field fortification and Fitzhugh Lee's cavalry attack. Defended by three regiments of USCTs under General Edward A. Wild, the fort encompassed an army depot at this historic wharf located on the banks of the James River.

Civilian reenactors can camp inside the fort on the high bluffs overlooking the James River in the same camp locations of the 1864 soldiers.
