"On to Richmond": The 155th Anniversary Reenactment of the Seven Days Campaign

June 3-4, 2017

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 the 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.
