Don't miss the 150th commemoration of the Battle of Staunton River Bridge. In June 1864, a small group of old men and young boys, along with Confederate regulars, defended the bridge against Federal cavalry. They repulsed the raiders, which allowed continued transport of supplies along the Richmond & Danville Railroad. Programs throughout the weekend include medical demonstrations, camp life, period music and more. On Saturday, see living-history actors, a medal ceremony for descendants, the battle's beginning and an artillery demonstration at dusk. On Sunday there will be a camp worship service and a tactical drill. It's $12 for Saturday and $8 on Sunday. Kids five and under get in free.
