Civil War in Herndon

I don’t know if this interests anyone, but this Saturday, to celebrate the grand opening of the Herndon Museum and Visitors’ Center in the town depot, Civil War re-enactors are planning to stage Confederate Capt. John Singleton Mosby’s only known raid in Herndon during the Civil War. On March 17, 1863, Mosby and his Rangers stormed to the Herndon Station, now the town depot, to capture Union soldiers assembled around the train station.

The raid is 12:30 – 1:15, so I’m leaving my house around noon. If you’re interested in coming, you’re welcome to park at my house and walk over with me. More info can be found at:
