Battle of Cedar Mountain Reenactment

2022 marks the 160th anniversary of the Battle of Cedar Mountain. This year’s special event on August 6 and 7 will feature these exciting battle reenactments:

Saturday: Attack of the 28th New York. At approximately 6:00 PM on August 9, 1862, three regiments of General Samuel Crawford’s Brigade attacked across a wheatfield on the western side of Cedar Mountain Battlefield. They shattered the incomplete left flank of the Confederate battle line and routed most of the regiments present, pursuing them almost ½ mile and overrunning the Confederate artillery on Crittenden Lane, before being stopped by fresh Confederate troops led by Culpeper native son A.P. Hill. Our reenactment will portray the 28th NY Volunteer Infantry, which took 258 men into battle and lost over 200 of them, and the 150 men of the 1st VA Battalion who opposed them. The troops who stop the breakthrough of Crawford’s brigade will represent the 14th GA of Taliaferro’s Brigade and 13th VA of Early’s Brigade.

Sunday: Attack of the 7th Ohio. At approximately 6:15 PM on August 9, 1862 four regiments of Ohio troops under General John W. Geary, advanced through a cornfield bordering the Orange-Culpeper Road, into the teeth of Confederate musket and artillery fire. The brigade was in two lines of two regiments each. On the right of the first line was the 7th OH Volunteer Infantry. The 7th OH took 309 men into battle that day and 191 would become casualties in the space of 30 minutes. Our reenactment will walk in the footsteps of the 7th OH as they take casualties, close ranks, and press on, and follow the advance of the 47th AL and 37th VA of Taliaferro’s brigade, supported by Confederate artillery that is present.

Battle of Cedar Creek

After an audacious night march, Jubal Early’s Confederates surprised Union troops near Cedar Creek and drove first one, then another, then a third Union Corps from the field. As Early paused to reorganize, Union General Phil Sheridan arrived from headquarters in Winchester just in time to rally his troops and launch a crushing counterattack from which Early’s forces could not recover. Sheridan’s victory at Cedar Creek extinguished any hope of further Confederate offensives in the Shenandoah Valley.
