Hear the roar of artillery, the beat of horse?s hooves and the muffled sounds of infantry on the march as Sully Historic Site hosts its annual Civil War Weekend today, Saturday, August 18, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., and tomorrow, Sunday, August 19 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Skirmishes each day illustrate military maneuvers of the period. Reenactors demonstrate the varied work of the army including drill, camp life, medical care, and artillery and rifle firing. Visitors can fall in as recruits and learn to march while carrying a wooden musket.
Sully Historic Site is
located in Chantilly off Route 28, one quarter mile north of Route 50,
five miles north of Route 66 or five miles south of the Dulles Toll Road.
