|On to Richmond - Seven Days Battle Reenactment , June 2-4 2017 endview.org/reenactment-information.php
In the spring of 1862, the cry “On to Richmond” was echoed by Union troops moving towards the Confederate capital under General George B. McClellan. These troops hoped to end the Civil War by capturing the city. What they weren’t expecting was the aggressive tactics of General Robert E. Lee, new to command of the army tasked with defending Richmond. The “Seven Days” battles produced some of the deadliest battles seen in the war up to that point and gave many soldiers their first taste of battle.
As a result of the fighting here in 1862, these two armies would continually face each other in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania for three more years in some of the most well-known battles of the war.
Now, 155 years later, the sights and sounds of these battles will come alive again as reenactors portray soldiers of both armies at Endview Plantation and Lee Hall Mansion. This event will feature battles, living history programs, demonstrations, and historical talks.
Brought to you by the city of Newport News, Endview Plantation, Lee Hall Mansion, and Rear Rank Productions.

|Gettysburg Civil War Battle Reenactment , July 1-3 2017 gettysburgreenactment.com
The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee is pleased to announce the military command for the 2017 (154th) & 2018 (155th) National Gettysburg Anniversary Civil War Reenactments. Command has been accepted by General (USA) Darrell Markijohn to lead the United States Volunteers and General (CSA) Tim Perry to lead the Army of Northern Virginia.
The acceptance and selection of both ANV and USV was preceded by an honest and constructive dialogue seeking to reinforce past event successes; while also recognizing the need for some change or improvement in other event details. It was agreed this constructive dialogue will be on-going and continue through both events.
The Gettysburg 154th on July 1, 2, & 3, 2017 will be at the Gettysburg Movie Site (Yingling Farm) next to the Historic Sachs Mill Covered Bridge overlooking the Roundtops. This smaller event footprint has been a rousing success with reenactors and visitors the past two years, with beautiful views and close proximity of battlefield, camps, sutlers and parking. Some exciting changes are in the wind for the Gettysburg National 155th Reenactment at the Redding Site on July 6, 7 & 8, 2018. We are currently working with both command staffs to re-evaluate the battlefield and site layout. There are some very promising ideas and options that we will be refining prior to Remembrance Day Weekend. We anticipate announcing more details Remembrance Day weekend.
