Breakthrough Battle Anniversary
April 1 @ 9:00 am - April 2 @ 5:00 pm
Join us as we remember the 158th Anniversary of the Breakthrough Battle which ended the Petersburg Campaign and forced the Confederate withdrawal from Richmond.
The Park is hosting a full weekend schedule of activities and programs for walk-in visitors. Attendees will have the opportunity to drill with the troops, see artillery, medical, and musical demonstrations. Visitors can experience a battle reenactment each day, on the actual Breakthrough Battlefield with reenactors and artillery providing all of the sights and sounds of battle. Additional programming focuses on civilians and the home front. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about food shortages and creative recipes during the Civil War. Event attendees will also uncover the impact of a military occupation on civilians and the resulting refugee crisis of those fleeing the fighting at their doorsteps. Throughout the weekend Park visitors can tour military encampments near the battlefield and encounter civilians, animals and demonstration gardening at historic Tudor Hall.
Daily admission for adults is $15, seniors (65+) and Military w/ID $12.00, children (6-12) $8, and children under 6 free.
