1859, a nation on the brink of war, a slave uprising narrowly avoided, a son far from home. Is a Merry Christmas possible?
Join us at the historic Bushong Farm. Visit with our living historians and discover how a family carries on in the face of national crisis. There are games to play, stories to hear, treats to eat, songs to sing, AND a visit from a special Christmas visitor.
1864, a nation divided, yet another Christmas far from home, lonely hearts and short rations… Is a Merry Christmas possible?
Visit the soldiers of Company F, 51st Virginia Infantry and bring some Christmas cheer to them far from hearth and far from hearth and home. Lend a hand with chores or join in the holiday celebration!
In the Virginia Museum of the Civil War you can create ornaments to decorate our tree and yours, and do some Christmas shopping in the General’s Store.
