Another Local Reenactment

The Battle of Middleburg was reenacted recently and got some coverage in the local paper.

The Battle was between Gen JEB Stuart and Union General David Gregg as Stuart tried to protect Lee’s flank on the long march to Gettysburg.

It was for three days (June 17-19, 1863) and the Union lost 350 men to the Rebels’ 40 losses. Most experts call the engagement a draw or “inconclusive” but as it assisted Lee’s journey northward, the Confederates considered it a victory.

And just like the reenactment of the Battle of Unison last autumn, there were very few reenactors present.

But we will take what we can get, huh?
