Feb 20
All Day
Goose Creek Bridge

Join local historian Rich Gillespie for a presentation of the June 1863 cavalry battle of Upperville.  Sandwiched between the famous battles of Brandy Station and Gettysburg, this often-overlooked battle proved the worth and fighting power of both Northern and Southern cavalrymen and their mounts.  Our program is hosted by Slater Run Vineyards, located near the actual battlefield at Goose Creek Bridge.  Enjoy a glass of wine and hear the stories of the valiant men who met face-to-face in the summer of 1863.
