Demonstrate the sights and sounds of the battlefield in 1864, including uniforms, equipment, and live fire demonstrations of Civil War era weaponry at a private range.
See preserved field fortifications on parts of the battlefield that are not publicly accessible and examine how they were constructed.
Use firsthand accounts to piece together the combat experience of soldiers who fought in the Muleshoe area of the Spotsylvania Courthouse battlefield on May 12th of 1864, and the civilians who were caught in the crossfire.
This Battle Ride is a joint partnership between the Army Historical Foundation (AHF) and the Central Virginia Battlefields Trust (CVBT), a non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve threatened battlefield land in Central Virginia related to the Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Mine Run, and Overland campaigns saving over 1,700 acres to date. Joining Foundation tour leaders will be Robert Lee Hodge. Hodge is an internationally renowned Civil War author, lecturer, researcher, documentarian, and preservationist. He is known for his role in the New York Times best seller Confederates in the attic, where he led author Tony Horwitz on a multi-day tour of significant Confederate battlefields in the East. Rob also serves as a member of the board for the CVBT. Also joining the ride will be Tom Van Winkle, President of the CVBT who will be discussing the preservation efforts of threatened battlefields in Central Virginia.
