Sailor’s Creek to host program

Sailor’s Creek Battlefield Historical State Park, staff, volunteers, and period-dressed living historians will host the annual commemorative anniversary program Saturday, April 10. 

The historic Overton-Hillsman House will be open for self-guided and ranger-led tours.  Major General Phillip Sheridan and members of his staff will establish headquarters in the yard of the home. 

The general will be discussing his battle strategy that led to the capture of nearly 10,000 soldiers from the Army of Northern Virginia. Living historians will be exhibiting the rigors of military campaign life, open fire cooking, and provide black powder demonstrations throughout the day.

This special event is free to the public.
